Understanding Korean Public Administration : Lessons Learned from Practice Hardback
Edited by Kwang Kook Park, Wonhee Lee, Seok-Hwan Lee
Part of the Routledge Advances in Korean Studies series
Although much has been written about the Korean public administration, the international academic community has little knowledge about it as most of the literature has been written in Korean.
This book aims to provide more accessible knowledge internationally by filling that gap, covering both the history and the current status of the Korean public administration.
This book is a collaboration of many Korean public administration scholars and would appeal to those interested in the secrets of Korea's rapid development in such a short span of time.
Each chapter covers historical contexts, key to understanding its public administration and an important aspect as Korea is a fast changing society.
The book takes on a more pragmatic approach rather than to put the Korean experiences into the western theory.
Each chapter therefore provides an extensive discussion on the lessons-learned and practical implications.
