Understanding the Drivers of Trust in Government Institutions in Korea
The erosion of public trust challenges government’s capacity to implement policies
and carry out reforms. While Korea has achieved and maintained rapid economic growth
and development, and performs comparatively well in several existing measures of the
quality of public administration, trust in government institutions is relatively low.
This pioneering case study presents a measurement and policy framework of the drivers
of institutional trust and explores some policy avenues Korea could take to restore
trust in public institutions.
