Abstract

The aim of this article is to extract the factors for successful conflict resolution by analyzing the multi-stakeholders’ conflict framing and the course of conflicts in the context of dam construction as one of the measures of disaster mitigation. The author examined the stakeholders, perceptual framing and conflict resolution mechanism of the conflict in the process of constructing Hantan River dam of South Korea. The results suggest that the personnel in charge 1) establish joint fact-finding procedures, 2) expand citizen participation in policy making by sharing information, 3) coordinate inter-agency, 4) enact related Acts to develop long-term measures for the residents and 5) create a standard manual of conflict in the context of disaster for a successful completion of the relevant projects in the future. Keywords: disaster management policy, conflict resolution, ADR, dam, Hantan River, Dong River.
