    The purpose of this paper is to identify mechanism for regulatory policy design by focusing on framing in the case of nuclear power regulatory policy. It is a critical success factor for deliberative policy design to substantialize active and deepen interaction among policy actors including citizens. The citizen participating group is the most important actor because their opinion have more effect on final policy decision. Indeed, they form a diversity of discourse to make their preference definitely but they are influenced by policy advocacy coalitions while interacting in the deliberative process. Then, analyzing interaction between policy actors is significant to understanding policy process and policy change. Specifically, analysis of how to from discourse on the basis of text data is more empirical study to figure out mechanism to policy process as recent policy studies underline narrative strategies like framing. In the case of deliberative polling for Shin-gori No.5&6, the citizen participating group formed discourse with micro-topic under the macro-topic framing like safety, environmental, economic during buzz session to make their final preference. So, this paper used recorded data of each buzz session to find out core discourse for mechanism in the nuclear power regulatory policy decision and verified related hypothesis from narrative policy framework. Total the number of 192 recorded-tapes were used for analysis and applied sementic network analysis with sentiment analysis and results are followings. Korean citizens have more consider macro-topic frame like safety and economic in national dimension than micro-topic frame like story of daily life and economic factors in household.

    Choi, Seong Rak | 2019, 28(2) | pp.63~86 | number of Cited : 1
    Abstract PDF
    The government did a lot of efforts to increase the trust of regulations. However, despite the various efforts of the government, the level of people’s regulatory trust is not much improved. One of the reasons why regulatory trust does not improve is that regulatory trust may be influenced by individual's social trust level and social tendency. Therefore, this study aims to examine whether regulatory trust is affected by individual's level of trust and social tendency. Based on a survey of 1,000 people, we examined whether individual trust levels and social tendency influence the level of regulatory trust. The results showed that gender, age, government trust, views on the future of the country, trust in corporation, recognition of internationalization, and political attitudes affected regulatory trust. Trust in regulation can vary depending on the degree of trust that individuals generally have in countries and companies, and in recognition of internationalization, regardless of the content of the regulation itself. Regulatory trust is not just a matter of regulation itself, but a factor that can vary depending on society's perception and individual's social disposition. This results suggests that to increase regulatory trust there is a need to approach problems at a higher level, for example, to increase the credibility of society as a whole.
