ABSTRACT

Since participatory budgeting was first started in Porto Alegre, Brazil, it has been introduced to many countries in America, Europe and Asia. In South Korea, participatory budgeting was first introduced in Bukgu, Gwangju city, and more and more local governments have adopted participatory budgeting. And all local governments have been required to adopt participatory budgeting by the amendment of Local Government Finance Act in 2011. This study aims to analyze the indigenization of the participatory budgeting in South Korea and develop policy suggestions for the participatory budgeting. The indigenization of participatory budgeting can be divided into two models in South Korea. One is path dependence model and the other is path evolution model. Path dependence model like Bukgu, Gwangju city has the characteristics of maintaining its original form in Porto Alegre. Path evolution model like Seoul city has the characteristics of gradually changing its original form in Porto Alegre. This study suggested that if the participatory budgeting should be operated in reflecting the context of local governments of South Korea while preserving the basic intentions and values of the participatory budgeting, the participatory budgeting could be successful indigenization in South Korea.
