- Although successive administrations in Korea have generally worked effectively in pursuing the goals of national development, each has shown a varying degree of success in achieving their missions and tasks and there were significant variations admong the administrations. While the Park and Chun Governments were successful, the Kim Young Sam and Kim Dae Jung governments were criticized for being inadequate. these variations among the regimes call for a new analytical framework to analyze and evaluate the successive administrations which have managed the state agenda for national development at different stages. This paper first develops a new analytical framework, based upon Lee Yoolgok's three-stage development model, which can be used for the analysis of changing governance schemes for different stages of development; Secon, it applies the new analytical framework to the Korean case to see if it can be used to evaluate the effectiveness of the governance schemes since the park administration; Third, the paper makes some normative suggestions to help develop the governance capability of the current government.
