Abstract

This paper examines the unfolding impact of the Internet on politics and government in Korea and Britain. While part of an ongoing research project, and not attempting a fully systematic comparison at this time, the paper explores available evidence about the scale and impact of online public participation, particularly in regard to major government websites in the two countries. It also considers government strategy for CIT, especially concerning electronic governance, and argues that both Britain and Korea have developed broadly similar and essentially top-down strategies, with detailed differences of implementation and some significant differences of emphasis. The Korean strategy encourages unmoderated online participation by the public, whereas the British approach seeks to foster participation in policy consultation in a more structured way.
