Abstract

There have been some critical debates about the construction-oriented, developmentalist nature of the Korean state among the Korean scholars. However, no clear explanation has emerged for why the Korean state adopted such construction-oriented, developmentalist selectivity. This paper seeks to answer this question of why the construction-oriented state has developed in South Korea by employing the strategic-relational approach to the state. In this paper, the author argues that the construction-oriented, developmentalist nature of the Korean state has been strengthened because at the local and regional scales, highly politicized territorial interests have been mobilized as a result of complex interactions among spatial selectivity of the Korean state, uneven regional development and territorialized party politics from the 1960s to the present.
