ABSTRACT

This study explores the obstacles to prevention of conflicts in local governments and their resolutions. Conflict assessment was introduced to Korea in 2007 as a part of the Regulation on the Prevention and Resolution of Conflicts in Public Agencies to prevent public conflicts. Looking at what happened over the last decade, the conflict assessment seems to have been carried out after conflicts as mitigative rather than preventive approaches. Many local governments have made regulations for conflict prevention and management which include conflict assessment. However, there are many obstacles such as organizational or budgetary problems, although many local governmental ordinances allow for the enactment of preventive conflict assessments. In this paper, we clarified the obstacles and examined ways to cope with them.
