ABSTRACT

The process of assessing environmental values and impacts is subjective and depends on predictions, limiting the securing of scientific rationality. Therefore, it is necessary to make a supplement by securing procedural rationality. This study has been tried to secure procedural rationality of EIA based on information disclosure system. The Aarhus Convention is an international treaty that defines the right of the public to access to environmental information and to participate in decision-making. This study evaluates Korean EIA information disclosure system by deriving 10 indicators based on the provisions on information disclosure presented in the Aarhus Convention. As a result, the five indicators were satisfied in terms of direction of information disclosure and provision. And the four indicators for the basis of utilization and process are required to be supplemented by detailed regulations. Finally, we derive the need for research on the asymmetry of expertise and acceptability of EIA system through public understanding indicators.
