Abstract

The number of NGOs has recently been growing very rapidly in many countries, and Korea is no exception. As the concept of good governance or co-production has been introduced in various areas of Korean society, NGOs have become influential on a number of sociopolitical issues and their leaders participate actively in government policy making. In response to the growing role of civil society and NGOs, the Korean government has paid much attention to the voices and activities of NGOs. As a result, the Office of Civic Cooperation was established within the Ministry of Government Administration and Home Affairs, and the government has increased financial assistance to NGOs for their social projects. There are both pros and cons present in the current relationship between the government and NGOs, but government-NGO relations are gradually being accepted as inevitable. Along such a trend, this paper will review governmental assistance to Korean NGOs in both practical and theoretical manner.
