Abstract
This paper is concerned with the public and private partnership in and the privatization of the
1988 Seoul Olympic Games, The Seoul Olympiad turned out a big success in almost all aspects of
preparation and operation. In particular, the close cooperation among the related govarnmental
agencies, private firms, various social organizations, and families and citizens was a driving force
behind the success of the Olympiad. The voluntary citizen participation in hosting the Olympics
contributed to the eficient operation and will leave long-term effects on approaching urban
problems. Although the motivation and incentive in participating in the event were different for
each participant, it is true the cooperation was wide and deep. This seems to be a good paragone
and experience for Seoulite as well as all Koreans in realizing the efficacy of voluntary participation
in public affairs. The only problem we still worry about is the authoritative nature of the
administrative guidance partly used in inducing the private firms to contribute to the Olympics.
