Abstract

This paper is concerned with the social responsibility of experts in the fields of science and technology in the process of large-scale nature-transforming national projects. This paper took the case of the Four Major Rivers Restoration Project in Korea−which has been admired internationally as a Korean-style Green New Deal on the one hand, and has caused domestic controversies especially among experts on the other hand−in order to deal with the issue of experts’ social responsibility. The research questions raised in this paper include why and how experts should take social responsibility and to what extent they have to be responsible. Through exploration of the case of the Four Major Rivers Project, this paper argues that experts have to claim social responsibility when national policies and projects are associated with scientific and technological elements, since these events hugely impact the daily lives of the public and the condition of the environment and demand large investments of public money.
