This paper has two objectives. First, to compare the innovations of the Participatory Government with those of the Civilian Government and the People’s Government. And Second, to explore the theoretical background of the Participatory Government's innovations.
This paper first asks the characteristics of the Participatory Government’s innovations compared to those of the previous governments. The results show that the Participatory Government shares some similarities with the previous governments, but also significantly differs from them at the same time. The Participatory Government focuses on changing functions and processes, system and culture.
Moreover, it elevated the status of public servants from the target of innovation to the agents of innovation. The government also pursues reform through unique methods such as roadmaps, forums and manuals.
This paper next asks what kind of ideological background the Participatory Government's innovations rely on. The answer to the second question is that the current government innovations seem to show mainly features of the participatory reform model. Although elements of NPM can be found in the
current government’s innovations, the government innovations basically rely on the theory of New Governance
