    Yung Wook Kim | Ham Seungkyung | 2015, 11(3) | pp.39~62 | number of Cited : 7
    This study analyzed how cultural biases, conflict perceptions and mediation types affected willingness to negotiate for solving conflicts in the context of the public dispute. The study investigated causal relationships between cultural biases and conflict perceptions in the first phase, and the impacts of these variables on willingness to negotiate under different mediating situations. The results showed that, hierarchical and egalitarian biases were related to the perception of value-related conflicts, and the fatalistic bias had an effect on interest-related conflicts. Conflicting parties with an individualistic bias expressed a strong willingness to negotiate both facilitative and evaluative mediation. On the other hand, conflicting parties with an egalitarian bias showed a strong willingness to negotiate only when they had a low level of the perception toward value-related conflicts in the situation of evaluative mediation. The results showed that conflict perceptions operate as moderating variables resulting in willingness to negotiate by interacting with cultural biases and mediation types.

    An Empirical Study on Disaster and Safety Information Needs for Foreigners in South Korea

    Kim Yoon Hee | Hyeon-Suk Lyu | 2015, 11(3) | pp.151~176 | number of Cited : 15
    Recently South Korea has experienced a number of catastrophic disasters. These ever-increasing disaster threats reflect not only a lack of government disaster capacity but also it reveals the vulnerability of certain groups of the South Korean populations whose demographic or socioeconomic characteristics may place them at greater risk of harm before, during, and after a disaster. These groups are often called ‘disaster vulnerable groups’. The total number of foreign residents in South Korea has reached over 1.5 million and is rapidly increasing. However, due to the language barrier and socio-cultural unfamiliarity, these foreigners are also regarded as a disaster vulnerable group, yet, the Korean disaster and safety policies and considerations for foreign immigrant families and migrant workers have just begun to be developed. As a result, they seem to be by and large excluded from the disaster and safety information provision and other disaster prevention education and training activities altogether. The purpose of this study is to explore what kind of disaster and safety information these foreign settlers would require and in which ways and channels they prefer to access it. It then further explores to what extent they are willing to participate in education and training for disaster prevention and safety prevention activities often organized and initiated by the central and local governments. For these purposes, this study adopts an intensive interview method. Based upon the findings, the study identifies the key problems and policy issues according to four themes. These findings can be used as basic resources to inform future government disaster and safety policies for foreign immigrant families and migrant workers. Additionally, it contributes to the nascent academic literature of migrant populations and disaster management.

    Park Min Hyang | 2015, 11(3) | pp.207~230 | number of Cited : 0
    The objective of this research is to establish a management plan to decrease exhaustion by mothers of children with respiratory diseases by type. When the treatments and nursing of respiratory disease child are not properly managed, it could bring serious complications and therefore, this study tried to provide the basic data for nursing intervention development targeting the mother of respiratory disease child. Regarding study subjects, surveys were executed to identify the parenting stress and burnout targeting the mothers of respiratory disease child who visited pediatrics clinic in C-do. In order to identify the relationship between parenting stress and burnout, Pearson's product moment correlation coefficients were calculated and to identify the influences of the variables, stepwise multiple regression analysis was conducted. Study results showed the ages, month income and parenting stress of respiratory disease child's mother significantly affected the exhausted state, passive attitudes, exhaustion, entire burnout which are the sub-factors of burnout and didn't significantly affect the loss of self-confidence. Non-maternal parenting stress didn't significantly affect the exhausted state and loss of self-confidence which are sub-factors of burnout, but significantly affected the passive attitudes and exhaustion. Therefore, parenting stress of mothers of respiratory disease child is considered to be bigger than that of ordinary mother. Because the degree of influences to burnout are different according to the parenting stress types, it is suggested to prepare for the management plans to reduce the burnout according to the parenting stress types and to strengthen social support system.

    Behavior Analysis of Rockfall Barrier with Spring Connections for Prevention of Cut-slope Disaster

    Sanghoon Han | Hong, Kee Nam | 2015, 11(3) | pp.247~260 | number of Cited : 0
    Rockfall barrier, which has been installed to prevent rockfall from cut slopes, is one of the most common rockfall protection measures. The capability of the rockfall barrier can be defined as sum of the energy absorption capability of wire mesh, steel support, and wire rope. The typical rockfall barrier absorbs energy of moving rock with these three parts. However, its parts should be changed with new ones although it is partially damaged by rockfall. Therefore, the aim of this study is to propose improved rockfall barriers with independent behavior by using spring-connections between wire rope and H-beam support. The size of H-beam support and spring stiffness should be preferentially determined for realizing the improved rockfall barrier system. This study used FEM analysis method to develope the spring-connections rockfall barriers against rockfall with impact energy 90 kJ. From FEM analysis results, it was confirmed that both road direction displacement and wire rope internal force of rockfall barriers with spring-connections was decreased. However, further study is required for various impact velocities and angles to evaluate the penetration and bounce of falling rocks.

    An Empirical Study on Factors of Effectiveness of Co-regulation and Measures for more utilizing Co-regulation in Korea

    Moo Hyun Choi | 2015, 11(3) | pp.285~308 | number of Cited : 2
    This study aims to study empirically the factors of effectiveness of co-regulation and to suggest measures for more utilizing co-regulation in Korea. The meaning of co-regulation is the regulatory modes that share to regulatory roles and cooperate between government and self-regulation organizations(SROs) for gaining a public goal. In co-regulation system, government gives legal bases and SROs are mid-actors that regulate actually regulatees. In this study, we find that it increases the effectiveness of co-regulation as increasing level of governmental interventions, SRO’s influences, and NGO’s influences in co-regulation system. We make the following suggestions for more utilizing co-regulation: ① to establish a role sharing system between government and private sector in perspective of regulatory governance. ② to search measures for effectiveness of co-regulation. ③ to introduce sound SRO’s filtering and supporting systems. ④ to make sure SRO’s publicness, independence, and transparency. ⑤ to enlarge participations of NGO’s in their decision making and implementation of co-regulation.

    Action for Dmages resulting from "Wrongful Life" and the Responsibility of Medical Malpractice- Focusing on Issues around the Crisis of Human Dignity

    Ryoo, Hwa-shin | 2015, 11(3) | pp.309~328 | number of Cited : 0
    This paper is about ' "Wrongful Life" torts. In a suit for ‘wrongful life’, the plaintiff(usually an infant) brings an action(usually against a physician) claiming that some negligent action has caused the plaintiff's life, say by not informing the parents of the likely prospect that their child would be born with severe defects. The most perplexing feature of this is that the plaintiff is claiming that he would have been better off if he had never been born. A number of arguments have appeared which purport to show that ‘wrongful life’ claims should not be allowed, either because it is senseless to claim that one would be better off if one had not existed or that it is impossible to assess the extent to which someone has been damaged by being brought into existence. This paper investigated various cases in which ‘Unwanted child' can be born, and the origin and definition of lawsuits for ‘wrongful life’, reviewing the issues about the damage and its evaluation in terms of human dignity and values violation.
