ABSTRACT

In this article, it is argued that while there has been a far-reaching reform in society regarding the public management after the Korean financial crisis of 1997, the recent research transition toward a citizen-centered mode of governance has been studied. Three forms of governance which includes market-centered, citizen-centered, and government-centered quoted from four emerging models as the future of governing(Peters, 1996) are classified to identify research trends. For this study, 115 articles published from 1997 to 2009 in four Academic Journals were reviewed. The number of articles reviewed on the three forms are as follows 62 articles on citizen-centered research, 32 articles on market-driven research, and 21 articles on government- centered research. This research trends are considered in a political context relevant to the past Korean authoritarian regime and incomplete democracy. In conclusion, to overcome a biased governance research, political context should be considered. Furthermore, a new statecraft research should be conducted.
