Abstract

One of the most talked about developments in social science over the last few decades is the (re)emergence of civil society and its growing influence on manu nations' democratic governance. The paper examined the following: (1) an examination of the growth of Korean nonprofits, (2) an analysis of laws and regulations governing nonprofits (3) an empirical analysis related to organizational governance in Korean nonprofits, and (4) conclusions and policy recommendations. In particular, it was found that internal and external accountability of civil society organixzations meed to focus on their role as major institutional actors. This implies that as long as the public does not perceive accountability as limited to compliance with legal and regulatory standards, we should expect accountability to include democratic internal governance. To accomplish this task, nonprofits and non-governmental organizations must break out of the traditional mold and become more responsible institutions for the services they provide. It was suggested that by utilizing the Internet as a communication tool, civil society organizations could overcome the space and time constraints of their members, thus facilitating better member participation.
