Abstract

A placard posted at a construction site as shown above makes us feel amazed at how much things have changed. It represents a scheme to ward off complaints or petitions about inconvenience by giving information about the purpose of construction and its scheduled period. Such a placard may signify an important change taking place in this society, although it may not be a world-shaking incident. It implies that it has recently become a crucial administrative task to manage conflict through accommodating residents’ voices about various projects from neighborhood construction projects to nationally important infrastructure undertakings. This indicates that a paradigm shift is taking place with regard to the development of civil society, placing more importance on public opinions than on the intentions of the public sector. Such a change should be understood in the context of the global network society in which news instantly spreads across the world. It also implies that in this era of local autonomy, it has become difficult to resolve disputes over public projects without reaching agreement with local residents through negotiations.
