Dissertations & Theses

The primary aim of this thesis is to explore public participation in the environmental decision-making process for potential benefits in developing Korean environmental laws. Public participation contributes to sustainable development through effective environmental management; in addition, it improves accountability and transparency in the decision-making processes of governmental agencies as a complementary measure of direct and participatory democracy. Therefore, public participation is crucial not only to environmental protection but also to the development of democracy—two major concerns of Korea in the new Millennium.
