ABSTRACT

The purpose of the enactment of the ‘Law on the National Archives ofKorea’ should be to secure the accountability and to shape up theimproved governance system in the field of records and archivalmanagement, which will contribute to the strengthening of democracy inrecords management and eventually to the widening of the democraticprogress in Korea. On the basis of the above recognition and by way ofnotion called ‘horizontal accountability’, this paper suggests the way tosecure the National Archives of Korea’s independency. And the way toreorganize the National Records Management Committee based on thepluralism and the ‘multi-layered’ governance system is also investigated. One of the main directions in the suggested law should be for theautonomy and transparency in the operation of the National Archives ofKorea. This paper tries drawbacks and limitations of the ‘Bill on the NationalArchives of Korea’ introduced to the National Assembly last year, andsuggests the alternatives as wel lto get further forward with relateddiscussion.
