    Introduction of Trends in Reporting Science Technology Risk by Korean Media - Focusing on Analysis of Newspaper Coverage of Nanotechnology in Major Daily Newspapers -

    SONG, HAE RYONG | Hang Min Cho | 2013, 9(11) | pp.1~18 | number of Cited : 3
    Abstract PDF
    This study explored the reporting trends related to advanced science and technology by Korean media with a specific example, nanotechnology. In fact, this study derived various discussions and suggestions by analysis of newspaper coverage of nanotechnology in major Korean daily newspapers. The main study results are as follows: First, according to the general trends in reporting nanotechnology, there were not many articles compared with the importance and public concern. Second, according to the empirical analysis results of the articles, most of the Korean newspaper coverage related to nanotechnology was quoted from the research presentations of university professors and researchers in Korea. It was shown that most of the themes stagnated at the level of 'basic technology/studies' and 'business market/economics'. Moreover, there were remarkably few profound themes dealing with social adaptability of nanotechnology such as 'risk' and 'society/morality' and problems caused by the risk. Furthermore, there was a strong tendency to publish articles with emphasis on the positive aspects of nanotechnology than dealing with possible problems caused by it or negative aspects. Third, according to the observation results of risk themes, there was remarkable health-related risk caused by nanotechnology. However, it was shown that there was a tendency not to mention the countermeasures that can solve actual risks in the process of dealing with the risk themes.

    A Study on Standard Research Classification of Disaster/Safety Research Arena

    Keum Ho Oh | 유병태 | SangHyun Park and 1other persons | 2013, 9(11) | pp.31~48 | number of Cited : 4
    In 2002, National Science and Technology Standard Classification System(NSTSCS) is enacted in order to manage efficiently budget, information, human resources and research projects related on national science and technology. NSTSCS has a foundational role for directing the national research strategies, which allocate efficiently the limited resources and maximize effectively the research accomplishments. Disaster/Safety Research Arena has got a significant attention from the people with the expectation of realizing the safe and happy society, so that the R&D budget related to Disaster/Safety has increased continually. Nevertheless, Disaster/Safety Research Arena is not accepted as a branch of national research areas and its sub-fields are sporadically allocated to sub-divisions of other research fields. This situation causes the difficulty to grasp the state of Disaster/Safety R&D projects and guide the consistent strategy for research investments. It does not agree with the national goal that is realizing ‘safe and synthetic society’ through activating Disaster/Safety research and developing useful technologies for disaster preparedness. In order to systemizing the national disaster/safety research area, it is necessary to make a disaster/safety area branch in the NSTSCS, which will be a helpful foundation for establishing the identity of Disaster/Safety area and operating systematic management of research projects. In this study, the historical development directions of NSTSCS is researched and the problems on operating the national Disaster/Safety research projects is investigated and analyzed. The conceptual frame for selecting sub-divisions of disaster/safety area is considered. Finally, the standard research classification of disaster/safety research area is suggested.

    Impact Analysis of Flood Discharge of Han River Basin under Climate Change

    Kim, Byung Sik | 2013, 9(11) | pp.49~64 | number of Cited : 1
    This study examines and analyzes how climate change affects flood discharges in the Han River basin. In order to consider climate change, this study uses the RCP 8.5 climate change scenario and predicts the probable rainfall for each frequency. In order to analyze flood discharges in the Han River, this study chooses the areas around the Soyang Dam, the Chungju Dam, and the Paldang Dam, and uses the HEC-1 model to predict the rainfall-runoff for each. The analysis reveals that the amounts of flood discharges in the areas around the Soyang Dam, the Chungju Dam, and the Paldang Dam will increase in two of the future periods(i.e., Future 1, from 2011 to 2040, and Future 3, from 2071 to 2100) in comparison to the reference period(i.e., 1981-2010), after showing a slight tip in Future 2(i.e., 2041 to 2070). As for the probability flood discharge, the amount is likely to increase overall throughout the experiment period(i.e., 2011 to 2100) in comparison to the reference period. In particular, the margin of increase will be especially greater around the Soyang Dam than around the other two dams. The increase in flood discharges reflects the increase in the amounts of rainfalls predicted according to the RCP 8.5 climate change scenario. Climate change, in other words, is expected to increase the future magnitude of flood discharges significantly, posing a significant challenge to the water management policy for rainy seasons.

    Effects of Crisis Responsibility and Crisis Communication Strategies on Acceptance and Public Relationship in Case of Blog Crises

    정혜승 | Yung Wook Kim | 2013, 9(11) | pp.93~114 | number of Cited : 8
    This study aims to examine to what extent crisis responsibility and crisis communication strategies adopted are accepted by the public when a power blog copes with a crisis and their effects on the public relationship. The experiment scenario took into consideration of the level of crisis responsibility and the type of crisis communication strategies. Blog crises were categorized into high and low responsible crises based on attribution theory and crisis communication strategies included the rebuild, diminish, and deny strategies based on the Situational Crisis Communication Theory(SCCT). The results indicated that crisis types and crisis communication strategies had main effects on the level of acceptance, but the interaction effect was not found. People had favorable attitudes in case of a low responsible crisis and the usage of the rebuild strategies. The interaction effect on the public relationship was found, but the main argument of linking crisis types and crisis communication strategies in the SCCT was not verified. Also the diminish strategy got the lowest score on the acceptance of crisis communication strategies and the public relationship, which is contrary to the SCCT argument. These results implied that the SCCT should take into account other variables when applied in the Korean situation. Theoretical ramifications were discussed based on the results.

    A Comparison of Police Administration Major Graduates' Gender Qquality Consciousness and Conventional Wisdom toward Sexual Harrassment and Those of Other Major Graduates'

    Chol Eun Ha | 2013, 9(11) | pp.115~132 | number of Cited : 5
    A comparison of police administration major graduates' gender equality consciousness and conventional wisdom toward sexual harrassment and those of other major graduates'. This study aims to enhance sex awareness through a comparison research on police administration major graduates' gender equality consciousness and conventional wisdom toward sexual harrassment and those of other major graduates'. The matter of what to major in a university or a college affects a great deal on any undergraduate' career path in the early stage of his or her adulthood and furthermore the level of a police administration major graduate's sex awareness can be understood as an aspect of occupational socialization in police organization culture. Accordingly, It is natural to say that gender equality consciousness and conventional wisdom toward sexual harrassment are indirect scales that can be used in measuring the level of consciousness of police organization in the future. Presently, sex awareness sensibility has been demanded more highly than ever to the police due to female officers' expended hiring and role diversification in the long time existing male oriented organization culture, therefore awareness of sex human right must be cultivated to keep pace with this trend. Thus while most universities and colleges have endeavored to job professionalization and characterization, now is the high time to pay attention to sex human right education.

    The Expansion of the Electronic Monitoring System and the Prohibition of Retrospective Punishment

    Jeong Cheol Ho | Kwon youngbok | 2013, 9(11) | pp.309~328 | number of Cited : 0
    Electronic Monitoring system was introduced to prevent the specific crimes in high recidivism rate and that arouses irrecoverable invasion to legal interests such as sexual crimes, murders, and kidnaps of under-aged person. In the initial stage of it's introduction, there were controversial arguments on the possibility of violation of the principle of double punishment prohibition. In the meantime, based on the public opinion, the legislators provided the supplementary provision on 15 of April in 2010, which allows retroactive application to ex-convicts who commit a crime before the enforcement of the act of attachment of electronic device for position tracking. Due to this, there was another argument which doubts about the fact whether retroactive application of Electronic Monitoring system violates legal security, protection of trust of criminals and then the principle of legality and the principle of non-retroactivity of punishment. On this argument, there is certain perspective discrepancy between the theoretical view point and the judicial precedent. The main stream of the theory consider Electronic Monitoring system as a measures of security in the characteristic of punitive sanctions so that this system is against the principle of legality and the principle of non-retroactivity of punishment. Meanwhile, the judicial precedent considers Electronic Monitoring system as a measures of security which is not for punitive sanctions, but for securing society through the prevention of crime, so that the retroactive application of the system is not against the principle of legality and the principle of non-retroactivity of punishment. In this study, we consider the electronic monitoring system as measures of security, limiting basic human right for the protection of public interests, not as a punitive sanctions or securing society through the prevention of crime. We take on the approach that the retroactive application of the system corresponds with the principle of retroactive prohibition as the general principles of law, not the principle of non-retroactivity of punishment derived from the principle of “nulla poena[nullum crimen] sine lege”. Therefore, we tired to solve the problem of allowance of the retroactive application of the system through the principle of proportion and careful measurement between the invaded interest and the possibly protected interest by the retroactive application.

    The Study on the Crisis Management System -Focused on the HACCP Program-

    Park Soo-Kyung | 2013, 9(11) | pp.363~385 | number of Cited : 0
    In spite of the established institutional strategies related with food in Korea, an overview of effective counter plans in each level on the perspective of crisis management has been significantly important today when the interest for safe foods has been increased. Due to the frequent import and export of food, the origin and channel of manufacturing and distribution of food has highly been long and complicated. According to this characteristic of the food, hazard factors are more likely to occur along these channels ever. Thus, it is necessary to retain information of each channel so that consumers can have right to make a safe decision on their food. In addition, due to the increase of international trading hazard of food is not limited to only one area but can be extended to any areas which share channel of distribution. Therefore, it is necessary to establish emergency alert system which allows the information of hazard food in one particular area to be shared in other areas. Since December 1997, Korea has established applicable regulations for HACCP from Processing of Livestock products Act, introducing HACCP and Sanitation Standard Operating Procedure(SSOP) in slaughter house and livestock workplace and preparing and running self criteria according to HACCP practice statement of CODEX. The purpose of this study is to analyze management status of Korean livestock based on stage model of crisis management and to provide policy proposal by drawing improving plan for establishing crisis management system. The results of this study provide that it is required to add programs for follow-up after analyzing crisis management in each level of HACCP, which shows a strong tendency of precaution. In addition, it is suggested that the contents of existing programs should be closely reviewed along with designed plans and examination. Also, based on institutionally alternative seeking for safe food, improved education and training are required as well as changing recognition of attaining safe food, which will lead to feasibility of the strategy of ‘From Farm To Table’in which safety of food is secured comprehensively from the level of produce to that of consumption. To sum up, an overall precaution should be reacted against hazard factors of food by establishing risk analysis system and applying precautionary principle based on scientific findings to make sure of enhancing customers’ trust by considering transparency of decision making process.
