    A Study on Influential Factors of the Organization Structure Attributes Regarding Disaster Management System of Korean Military : Focusing on National Disaster Level Occurrence

    김동혁 | 2012, 8(1) | pp.71~92 | number of Cited : 0
    Nowadays the characteristics of disaster eventually threaten all over the world by quick industralization, besides the level and size of disaster is getting larger and complexity than before, Thus diverse organizations and groups such as central and local government, related agencies, citizens, NGOs, companies including military are required to be forms as a multi-organizational cooperation system that is against the national disaster. Particular the role of military organization is getting becoming important agency to government. However disaster management is limited to be performed by R.O.K Army so far. and the practical military disaster management system is insufficient supporting by weak legislation and institutions. This research is focused on what attributions of organization structure of military should take to fit the characteristic of disaster. therefore this research deals with concepts of disaster management, organizational structure, contingency theory. The following consists of the research analysis. Firstly, the environment is comparatively stable. The forecasted highly possible characteristics of chronic disaster usually result in a general disaster rescue unit to be deployed in which disaster management utilizes a mechanistic structure which leads to an organizational structure to be formed. The research between Burns & Stalker and Lawrence & Lorsch portray that efficiency is the utmost pursued value. The official regulations are operated through units of definite fields which are stiffly applied with little discretion. The authority structure is being more centralized. Communications is usually done through a vertical passage with downward directions and orders plus upward briefing in accordance of accomplishment. The divisional structure is precise; the divisions are mutually connected so modification and combination consist of hierarchism in which mechanistic structure can be seen to be suitable. Secondly, the environment is very complicated. The lowly forecasted characteristics show acute disaster by customarily professional disaster rescue unit being involved with the disaster management portray an organic structure to be suitable for recuperation. Furthermore, the research undertaken by Burns & Stalker and Lawrence & Lorsch show the ultimate objective for survival is adaptability and division of the environment. The official regulations depend on the flexibility of the situation. The authority structure is becoming decentralized. The modification and integration of specialized divisions are communicated through lateral means of mutual negotiations. The division of structure seems to be indistinct which results in divisions to mutually duplicate. Moreover, the relationship of mutually inter-relying on each division loosens. A considerable sector are autonomic and independently operated, therefore an organic structure can be seen to be appropriate.

    윤이 | 은종화 | Sang-Tae Chung | 2012, 8(1) | pp.109~126 | number of Cited : 8
    Chemicals can cause enormous damage in a short time. It is relatively easy for everyone to acquire and manufacture them. And because chemicals have an effect that can make people in panic with fears, terrorist groups have regarded them as the means of terror attacks for a long time. Therefore, we should prevent hijacking and diverting of chemicals though the perfect control of them. But it is difficult to control chemicals consistently because domestic chemicals are managed by at least 7 ministries and 13 regulations according to their own purpose and usage. Especially, domestic related regulations are usually concentrated on the accident prevention system and safety management, so there are some kinds of limitations to prevent illegal usage such as terror, etc. The purpose of this study is to propose regulatory measures against chemicals which can be used in terror. To figure out effective regulatory measures, we surveyed Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism Standards that is a related regulation in USA and analyzed the management state of chemicals in Korea. This study presents enacting a new law or amending the existing law as the regulatory measures against Terror Usable Chemicals. It also presents the way to classify and to list Terror Usable Chemicals.

    The Integrated Effect of Islamic Extremism and Strong Tribal Tradition in Afghanistan on the Disruption of the Afghan Nation-State Building and Terrorism and Drug Trafficking as Crisis of Security

    윤민우 | 김종화 | 2012, 8(1) | pp.155~176 | number of Cited : 1
    This article explains about the disruption of nation-state building and symptoms of security crisis such as terrorism and drug trafficking in Afghanistan since 2011. This essay shows that terrorism and drug trafficking as types of security crisis in this country is closely related to the disruption of potent nation-state building, and the weak presence of nation and nationalism. Pulling-up force from above the nation-state level called Islamic extremism and pulling-down force from below called strong persistence of tribal tradition, by interacting together, prevent nation and nationalism from forming and incapacitate construction and operation of the nation-state in today's Afghanistan. Due to these hurdles, the Karzai's weakly built nation-state lacks legitimacy and law-enforcement capacity and thus cannot monopolize violence and protect local population in most of Afghan regions. Security crisis such as rampant terrorism and drug trafficking in this country is heavily influenced from this impotence of the central nation-state and further disrupts the construction of the stable nation-state. So, disruption of nation-state building and security crisis form full circle and feed with each other. The weakness of nation and nationalism resulting from strong anti-nation and anti-nationalism force such as Islamic extremism and strong tribal tradition is an effect behind misfortune of the full circle. The security crisis of Afghanistan observed today can be a case well showing that how the nation-state, which is hastily built by a foreign hand and thus not based on the sound formation of nation and nationalism, is vulnerable and that the vulnerable state can eventually lead to the disruption of the state and the crisis of security. By closely examining the case of Afghanistan, this essay suggests that the crisis of nation-state and security seen in the today's Afghanistan requires more complex and multidimensional understanding of nation, nationalism, and nation-state.
