ABSTRACT

The system of national policy pursuits the efficiency and responsibility through political and administrative specialization of functuion. The content and direction of national policy might depend on the relation of politics and administration. The vertical ralation of command-obedience on the chain of command have changed into the horizental relation of guidance-addistance as on-going Administrative State and Wellfare State. The role of administrator is also viewed as vision-mension and policy-mension beyond administration-mension and management-mension. Therefore, in this context, it is thought that responsibility of administrator has to have political responsibility. But the representative democratic system gives exemption of responsibility to administrator differently politician. Politicians take over all responsibility including administrator's political responsibility. The problem of responsibility is various according to administrative culture. In the case of Korea, our nation, prime minister and secretary have charged the responsibility of policy failure instead of President. But, in Japan's case, administrator developed various logics about accountability not to burden the political responsibility to politician. The policy of the opening rice market is the representative case to discuss about the issue mentioned here.
