    Framework for the Analysis of the Role of Policy Transfer in Policy-making

    Joon Keum Jung | 2006, 17(2) | pp.53~78 | number of Cited : 10
    Abstract
    In recent years there has been a growing body of literature within public administration and political sciences that directly and indirectly uses, discusses and analyzes the processes involved in lesson-drawing, policy convergence, policy diffusion and policy transfer. While the methodology and focus often vary, all of these studies are concerned with a process in which knowledge about policies, administrative arrangements, institutions and ideas in one political setting is used in the development of policies, administrative arrangements, institutions and ideas in another political setting. The concept of policy transfer have become increasingly influential ways of understanding public policy. I tried to suggest the theoretical framework to analyze the role of policy transfer in policy making process. This article is divided into four major sections. The first section briefly considers the concept of, the research trend of policy transfer. The second section then presents a framework for the analysis of policy transfer. The third section outlines the limits of policy transfer itself and the framework of this paper. Finally, the last section addresses the future research agenda of policy transfer.

    Seo Sun-Bok | 2006, 17(2) | pp.131~157 | number of Cited : 20
    Abstract PDF
    This study researches Glasgow in 1990 as the example case of the City of culture and tries to contribute to setting the direction of GwangJu to the Asian City of Culture, and leads to some suggestions for that purpose in Korean circumstances. The suggestions are as follows. Firstly, capital investment and building plan should be considered from the viewpoint of sustainability and its long-term monetary plan should be established in the beginning of the plan. Secondly, participation all over the citizen in the city is important. thirdly, the meaning of cultural investment lies in the consideration as to how to create regional culture and how to accelerate its sustainable production in order to consume it in the region and to export it to the outer world. Fourthly, cultural investment includes human beings and their community together, and does not cause human beings risk behind the scene in case of environmental change. Fifthly, The impact of cultural investment should be evaluated and assessed. Sixthly, the organizational consistency is needed in the pursuit of the project of City of Culture. Furthermore, Korean government tries to develop GwangJu as City of Culture both in Korea and in Asia. It indicates the city-regeneration through the strategy of setting some Asian important cities as City of culture, which follows the case of European Cities of Culture and which means the strategy of jumping-over nation border in Asia.

    A Study on Characteristics of Conflict and Conflict Management Strategies of Cheong Gye Cheon Restoration Project.

    권영규 | 2006, 17(2) | pp.159~189 | number of Cited : 38
    Abstract
    This study tries to find whether there exists any relationship between characteristics of conflict and choice of conflict management strategies. Conflict can be classified into 3 categories : Influence conflict, Interest conflict. and Goal conflict. Conflict management strategies include ; dominance by power, deliberate disregard, incidence of critical events, intervention of the third party, and negotiation. Seoul Metropolitan Government(SMG) used negotiation as a tool to solve interest conflicts such as ; merchant related conflict, and street vendor related conflict. Traffic pandemonium related conflict is a kind of goal conflict. The restoration of cultural heritage related conflict has both characteristics of goal and influence conflict. Goal conflict and influence conflict are hard to solve by negotiation. Therefore, SMG used various means such as dominance by power, deliberate disregard, incidence of critical events, and intervention of the third party. It is best to pursue satisfactory resolutions of conflicts between stakeholders but sometimes it is unrealistic. We need to find a suitable solution that fits the real world. In that sense, it is worthwhile to utilize the conflict management strategies discussed above, which hopefully will result in disappearance or latency of conflict.

    New Institutional Arrangement for the Self-Governance of Korean Irrigation Systems

    Kwanbo Kim | 2006, 17(2) | pp.239~278 | number of Cited : 1
    Abstract
    In 2001, the Korea Rural Community & Agriculture Corporation (KRC, former KARICO) launched the first Farmers’ Self-Governing Model District Program (FSMDP), which is a kind of participatory irrigation management (PIM) through the new institutional arrangements. This paper evaluates the performance of the first FSMDP based on the Institutional Analysis and Development (IAD) framework. Three research questions can be broadly raised: 1) what are the factors of sustainable self-governing irrigation systems? 2) how is the first FSMDP designed for sustainable self-governing irrigation systems? 3) how has the management performance or outcome of 62 Korean irrigation systems changed after the introduction of the first FSMDP? and what are the factors of such performance change? To answer these queries, research methods and data collection were conducted by KORIS DB, farmers’ perception surveys, and KRC data. First of all, the first FSMDP has been successfully designed and implemented with profound, sustainable self-governing factors. In terms of physical, community, and institutional attributes, most of the 62 irrigation systems under the FSMDP hold the conditions of the propositions for the sustainable governing irrigation systems. Reflecting on the propositions and three attributes in the IAD framework, most of the 62 irrigation systems produce a positive performance under the first FSMDP. Also, design principles for sustainable self-governance are identified in the FSMDP. Finally, most of the irrigation systems after the first FSMDP are being operated with de jure and de facto rules under the sustainable self-governance mechanism. In particular, these results come partially from the indigenous and traditional cooperation and trust of KRC officials and farmers before KRC reform, along with the experience of organizing farmers’ self-organization.
