Abstract

This paper explores the dynamic evolution of water quality policy in a hierarchical country like South Korea since the 1980s. The stage-based institutional analysis explains the South Korean water policy process as a set of incremental change stages. Additionally, the normative approach is used to complement the rational institutionalism as it is less capable of addressing the motivation and initiation of change. Based on the lenses of shift in governance as water reform ideas to Korean case, strong national government initiatives on water quality face the intrinsic problems of a centrally driven process of water reform. Adopting new policy tools and ideas without building up formal and informal institutions of collaborative governance has led to the limited and selective operation of innovation for better water management.
