ABSTRACT

The This study adopts the event-related policy change model by Birkland in order to examine policy change and policy learning after provocation from North Korea. The model is for explaining not only the relationship between learning applied to policy decision and policy change, but also the focusing event itself. If similar events consecutively take place, it is not regarded as being related to the nascent focusing event and it leads to policy failure. This paper conducts 3 skirmishes at the West Sea, Cheonan ship sunk incident, and shelling against Yeon-Pyeong-do. It is examined that not only provocation by North Korea as large scale of disasters in Korea, but also policy change and policy learning after disaster thereby adopting the event-related policy change model of Birkland. In order to look over the process of each event, both the relevant press reports of each affair and the frequency of it referred from the National Assembly have been examined. From the research, some attributes are suggested as following; provocation of North Korea in respect of time of occurrence, the duration by being issued, the primary report from media, time lag between media and National Assembly’s formal report, and the consistency of the event.
