This study focuses on the political economy of the Official Development Assistance (ODA) by the Republic of Korea from 2000 to its mid-implementation period in 2007. It was in 2000 when the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) were adopted for a global action plan to achieve the eight anti-poverty goals by 2015. South Korea, as one of the members of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), has taken actions in order to extend help and contribute to the development of the developing countries (DCs) and the least developed countries (LDCs), with special attention and higher priority to the latter. Among the recipient countries of South Korea’s ODA have been Cambodia and Zambia. However, it is interesting to note that the volume of ODA given to Cambodia and Zambia are comparatively different, thus this research explores to find underlying reasons and explanations.
