Abstract

In 1991, the South Korean government resumed the self-governing system at the local level, and has transferred authority for designing and implementing policies to local governments little by little. It is generally agreed that this devolution of authority had little impact and has thus resulted in little variation in policy outcomes across local jurisdictions. In the result of government reform strategies in 2004, local governments now have greater control over how much they spend and which policy alternatives, 67 out of 138 spending alternatives that they spend it on. This study examines variation in policy outcomes across local jurisdictions and the degree to which this variation can be explained by the use of local policy making discretion, shaped by local environments. Specifically, how political factors across local governments in South Korea explain local policy outcomes is explored. (The rest omitted)
