    New Social Risk? - Perception toward Immigrants and Its Determinants in Korea -

    Sook-Yeon Won | 2015, 11(10) | pp.41~62 | number of Cited : 4
    Abstract PDF
    This study explores social distance toward immigrants perceived by mainstream Koreans. Social distance is measured via psychological acceptance of immigrants as ‘neighbors’ and perception towards giving priority of works on immigrants. The data from the World Value Survey(2015) were used for an empirical analysis. The findings are as follows. First, there was a split response between acceptance and exclusion regarding perception toward immigrants as "neighbors", while their perceptions in terms of "job-seekers" was predominately negative. Second, their stress over the limited resource taken by immigrants affected their negative perceptions toward immigrants, particularly among those who were less educated, temporarily employed, and belong to the lower social class. Mainstream Koreans in the highest social class, however, had extremely negative perceptions toward immigrants as "neighbors" rather than "job seekers". Third, negative perceptions toward immigrants as "job seekers" appeared even stronger among the respondents who were younger, male, unemployed and had more children.

    An Analysis of Social Amplification of Risk by Modifying SARF - Focusing on the Case of MERS -

    Young-Dae Kim | 2015, 11(10) | pp.63~89 | number of Cited : 7
    Significant fear and anxiety for MERS have increased in Korea, even though government and most medical experts have reportedly estimated that risk of the MERS is not so high. The SARF is really useful to explain this sort of phenomenon as it attempts to explain how social amplification of risk takes place and what factors determine it by integrating several perspectives regarding risk. This study designs a modified SARF to explain a social amplification mechanism. The research results show that the risk in terms of the MERS has been amplified through complex factors. In particular, the facts that government has rarely paid attention to risk perception of the public have led to failure of effective risk communication. These findings derive key lessons for government that it needs to formulate and implement knowledgable policies and institutions, to try to communicate with the public based on much higher openness and transparency, and then to secure trust in government by the public.

    A Social Analysis of the Limitation of Governmental MERS Risk Communication

    Kim Eun-sung | 2015, 11(10) | pp.91~109 | number of Cited : 26
    Abstract PDF
    Risk communication was one of the most serious challenges surrounding the MERS crisis that occurred in 2015 in Korea. As the Korean government postponed to disclose the names of the hospitals where confirmed MERS cases were exposed, the MERS spread from hospitals to hospitals and public anxiety was amplified significantly. This article examines social causes for the failure of governmental risk communication during the MERS outbreak in Korea. This article views the MERS risk communication strategy of the Korean government as the “deficit model” and analyzes its problems and limitations from the perspective of the “contextual model.” In particular, it addresses the roles and implications of scientific uncertainty, mutual interests, governmental trust, the construction of citizens’ identity, and the social effect of sigma in risk communication. Finally, it suggests a guideline on how to improve risk communication process in handling emerging infectious diseases such as the MERS.

    Non-stationary Intensity-Duration-Frequency Curves & Design Flood for Drainage System Design Coping with Climate Change

    Se Jin Jeung | 홍일 | Kim, Byung Sik | 2015, 11(10) | pp.237~255 | number of Cited : 2
    The design approach of the drainage system has limitation not to consider the extreme rainfall condition of which I-D-F curve is non-stationary by climate change and variability. Therefore, the assumption that the I-D-F curve is stationary to design drainage system maybe not available in the climate change, because climate change has changed the characteristics of extremes rainfall event to be non-stationary. In this paper, design rainfall by rainfall duration and non-stationary I-D-F curve are derived by the conditional GEV distribution. Furthermore, the effect of design flood discharge with increase of rainfall intensity was analyzed by distributed rainfall-runoff model, S-RAT. Although there are some difference by rainfall duration, the traditional I-D-F curves underestimates the extreme rainfall events for high-frequency rainfall condition. As a result, this paper suggests that traditional I-D-F curves could not be suitable for the design of drainage system under climate change condition.
