ABSTRACT

Public interest in lotteries has been increasing over recent years, as evidenced by the growth in ticket sales and in the number of lottery funds. Previously, scholars paid very little attention to lottery policy but recently it has become one of the major major policy issues for everybody in the Government. In order to address the issue of quantitative growth accompanied by qualitative shortcomings which lotteries face, this study has analyzed the agenda setting processes of lottery policy based on historical facts. A particular focus was the definition of agenda setting as the first step in the policy process by the lead group, as well as public interest in the agenda setting process. The results of the case study reveal that there are four types of agenda setting processes in Korean lottery policy; mobilization of the housing lottery, inside-access of the sports lottery, outside-initiation of the online lottery, and consolidation of the union lottery. Changes were made simultaneously in the type of agenda-setting process, the control system, and regulation of the lottery market. In the agenda-setting process, the lead group has been affected by the political environment, and public interest has been influenced by the results of the previous lottery policy. The most important step toward choosing an alternative lottery policy is the agenda setting stage. Since the agenda has been built, there have been hardly no changes and the agenda has been reflected in the formulation of lottery policy. The purpose of this study is to demonstrate that the value of 'justice' and the procedural standard of 'consolidation' are necessary in order to set the goal of the lottery policy agenda.
