ABSTRACT

In the early days of modernization, the Korean public society was operated as a driving force of national development. But it has recently become a subject of distrust. In the 1970s, dictatorship leadership was formed between government and civil society. Through the resistive democracy in the 1980s, the opposition against the government by civil society was formed. Moreover, in the 2000s, as the politics of conservatism and progress was alternatively changed, an institutionalization of mistrust is perceived. This is why it is necessary to analyze the causes and factors of the distrust of administration and establish a new administrative system. In the early times of capitalist society, the relationship between capitalism, democracy and bureaucracy has created a virtuous cycle of capitalist development and democracy. But the further development of bureaucracy to secure efficiency has paradoxically created a vicious circle of capitalism and democracy. The technical skills to control the society created an oppressive relations. In this context, it is necessary to make efforts to form a new relationship as it is transformed into a network system in the information age. For this purpose, it is necessary to separate the bureaucratic research from the politics and to change the viewpoint of the individual as the organization member. And we need to find ways to shift to decision-making through discussions and consultations rather than by the hierarchy. To this end, the study of public administration and education should be redesigned.
