ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study is to seek the core system of national crisis and emergency management system in Korea for the purpose of achieving the effective and efficient response mission. Core system can be defined as a network hub that leads and coordinates a entire system to a specific direction. This paper suggests five major elements which form a core system such as value, institution, leadership, devotion, and expertise. This research reveals several problems of national crisis and emergency management in Korea as follows; absence of core system, unsystematic situation control, inadequate disaster management function, difficulty of policy coordination from 'partition wall effect', non-learning disaster management from the past experience, and so on. This article suggests seven recommendations for improving the national crisis and emergency management in Korea as follows; (1) establishment of core system of national crisis and emergency management, (2) construction of national crisis and emergency management governance, (3) reinforcement of local government capacity for managing disaster, (4) development of democratic job performing mode like support-cooperation-network-coordination, (5) construction of the social-embedded crisis & emergency management system, (6) institutionalization of the new perception and culture of safety, and disaster management in local governments.
