ABSTRACT

The study of the Japanese colonial period has been considered significant in that the modern Korean administrative system not only began to emerge in earnest in this period, but also as the influence of the colonial period can still be seen on the current administrative system in Korea. In this vein, the authors examine the macro characteristics of the administrative system in the era of Japanese colonization with a focus on the major administrative institutions. According to the research results, not only was the modern administrative system institutionalized in the areas of public finance, police and local administration, but diverse information systems were established in this period with the aim of improving administrative efficiency and effectiveness. In addition, Japanese imperialists took control of Korean society through a diverse range of intermediary organizations which linked state and society, such as semi-governmental unions and associations. Through these institutions and information systems, the Japanese imperialists were able to achieve colonial exploitation and coercive rule.
