Aims & Scope
『Regulatory Study』 is an academic journal published by the Korea Society for Regulatory Studies and aims to revitalize research on regulatory reform to create a market economy. By providing a venue for academic research related to regulation through this journal, research in the field of government regulation can be deepened, awareness of the necessity and importance of regulatory research can be spread to the academic community, and meaningful policy proposals for regulatory management can be made.   The scope of 『Regulatory Study』 is related to the development and diffusion of regulatory theories, verification of the effectiveness of regulatory policies, research on developing regulatory management tools, and in-depth understanding of market economy. Other studies on the relationship between policies and markets, such as studies on the impact of various government policies on the market economy, can be the subject of this study.   Therefore, studies related to the above topics are subject to review and publication in this journal, and the editorial committee expects these studies to be actively sumitted to the journal.

    Abstract PDF
    This study attempted to empirically analyze the relationship between corporate regulatory satisfaction and regulatory compliance perception on government regulations, considering the influence of perception on the amount of government regulations. To this end, a survey was conducted on 718 businesses nationwide from July to October 2021. As a result of the analysis, the effect of a company's regulatory satisfaction on regulatory compliance perception was limited in the analysis of others' regulatory compliance perception, but not significant in the analysis of their own regulatory compliance perception. In this study, this was interpreted as an implicit influence relationship, which the satisfaction with regulations turn out to be an important variable in the perception of regulatory compliance of others, but it is not explicitly found in the perception of regulatory compliance of themselves. It can be explained that their own regulatory compliance is perceived as having a low exchange relationship with regulators, contrary to other people's regulatory compliance. In particular, considering the cases in which regulatory satisfaction is low, but excessive emphasis is given to one's own regulatory compliance, it is possible to expect a principled but quite passive behavior of regulatory compliance. Of course, it cannot be said that an exchange relationship model that implies the level of regulatory compliance determined by the degree of individual regulatory satisfaction is desirable. Moreover, there is no need to negatively interpret the analysis results of this study. However, the increasing rate of responding to high regulatory compliance levels despite high regulatory burden and low satisfaction raises concerns about the possibility of failing substantial and active regulatory compliance. It can be suggested to seek long-term and fundamental improvement measures to improve the quality of regulatory compliance.
  • A Study on Estimation of Appropriate Deposit to Promote Recycling of Disposable Cups: Focusing on Willing-to-Pay Estimation by Contingent Valuation Method

    Abstract PDF
    This study deals with the method of estimating the deposit amount used in the Deposit System of Disposable Cups that is about to be implemented. The study used the contingent valuation method, which focused on the willingness-to-pay estimation with double-bounded dichotomous choice questionnaires. By nonlinearly combining the values obtained by multiplying the regression coefficient obtained through a logistic regression and the average of each variable, the study estimated the appropriate deposit amount to be approximately KRW 350. In addition, the results showed differences in the willingness-to-pay amount for each group classified according to various criteria―gender, age, and system recognition level. Based on the results, this study also suggested implications for the behavior of returning disposable cups.
