ABSTRACT

The regulatory policies related to environmental issues involve various social contexts and interested parties. We examined how the social contexts on Golden Apple Snail (Pomacea canaliculata) have made the regulatory policy sluggish for a long time, and how the regulatory science has been used and interpreted differently by each ministry of the central government in South Korea. We analyzed relevant newspapers, reports and papers of related ministries and affiliated research institutes over 20 years. The regulatory policy on Golden Apple Snail was not free from the political, economic, and social contexts influenced by international and domestic changes, and the implementation and interpretation of regulatory science were also related to the interests of ministries such as the Ministry of Environment and the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry. This study is expected to contribute to understanding the characteristics of regulatory policies and regulatory sciences in particular domestic contexts.
