ABSTRACT

The central government plays an important role and function in disaster management in order to mitigate personal and property damages from disasters. This study analyzed the process of organizational change undergone by the disaster management units of the Korean government since 1948 right after liberation. Temporal categorization of organizational changes was based on the hierarchical change of the organization in charge of disaster management tasks. We collected the data on the changes in disaster management organization in Korea from published reports, laws, and organizational records. We analyzed all kinds of organizational units related to disaster management to deduct the characteristics of organizational changes in each period and compared them based on the principles of division and coordination. Based on the results of analysis, we derived implications for the organizational structure and reform of disaster management organizations in Korea.
