Abstract

The internet revolution and the emergence of Web 2.0 technologies have not only revolutionized social media, they have also revolutionized approaches to government transparency, accountability and accessibility. Over the past several years, government websites have become increasingly detailed and interactive in attempts to increase citizen access to and participation in the government and its decision-making processes. Korea, in particular, has been ranked as number one in the world in e-government and e-participation initiatives since 2010. This article explores the impact of the U.S. and Korea’s e-government and e-participation initiatives on reducing the impact of wealth in administrative rulemaking, and its implications for citizen participation and engagement in the two democracies. This article will discuss the origins of the U.S. and Korea’s commitments to citizen participation and summarize the e-government technologies of the two nations using the criteria and rankings of the 2014 UN E-Government Survey report as the framework.
