Academic research for the national crisis mana- gement in Korea is now very restricted and not popular. Korean scholars, maybe, do not share the common definition of the national crisis. In this paper, I define the national crisis as the event or situation influencing severely the peo- ple's life and property, and the national security. National crisis can be classified into three typology. The first is the traditional security crisis, for example, violation of sovereignty by foreign state, armed attack, total or limited war, etc.. The second type of the national crisis is the disaster crisis which consist of natural disaster and man-made/technological disaster. The third type of crisis is the critical infrastructure, for instance, collapse of the banking, transportation and distribution, electrical power supplying, in- formation and communication, public health, dam, energy supplying system, etc.. In this con- text, this research investigates the academic development programs or plans for the national crisis management in a comparative study among the U.S.A., Japan, Deutschland.
