ABSTRACT

This study investigated the structure and characteristics of regional development disputes occurring in South Korea. The analyses focused on participants, interests, issues, and dispute resolution methods. Results showed that civil society organizations got involved in more disputes as a disputing party and the disputes lasted longer when civil society organizations got involved in them as a third party. Second, regional development disputes lasted longer when they are associated with cost, environment, and health. Third, the number of disputes associated with commercial facilities steadily increased while the number of those associated with military installations, power plants, preferred facilities recently increased. Fourth, the number of regional development disputes increased once at each first and second half of the year. Lastly, the disputes resolved by a coercive force lasted longer than those resolved by alternative dispute resolution methods. Yet, regional development disputes need to be managed in that the number of the disputes resolved by ADR was very small.
