Soonhee Kim on E-Participation in Local Governance in South Korea
Soonhee Kim, Professor, Department of Public Administration and International Affairs, Syracuse University
The use of information technology to improve government and encourage greater citizen participation is widespread in South Korea. Yet little is known about the driving forces behind active e-government (electronic government). Professor Kim will discuss three critical factors that are associated with a high rate of e-participation, including trust in government, social ties, and volunteering.
Soonhee Kim is a professor at Syracuse University’s Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs. Her areas of expertise include public management, strategic human resources management, electronic government, local governance and leadership development.
Sponsored by the East Asia Program at the Moynihan Institute of Global Affairs
