(Working Paper 2017-11/Employment and Labor Policies in Transition: Labor) Reorganization of the Worker Representative System
The period from late 2016 to early 2017 can be characterized with the word “agora.” Numerous people voluntarily poured out into the streets and into agoras. Why did Koreans pour out into the streets and agoras? What did Koreans wish to achieve?
From the current perspective of people possessing sovereign power rather than being simply ruled by the state,
it is quite natural that people wish to enjoy a more active participation in the state or organization with which they
are affiliated. In today’s democracy, the participation of the people in state and societal affairs has become a basic
principle for social order. Such thoughts are rooted in the understanding that no decision may be made unilaterally
by anyone with leadership or influence, and that decisions need to be made in collaboration with the members of the
group. This also implies that the members of a group do not simply stop at passively following orders but actively
participate in decision-making.
