Chapter 4 discusses the SMG’s achievements in housing, education, culture, the environment, and civilian exchange between South and North Korea, emphasizing the paramount importance of investing in people. Chapter 5, maintaining communication as the start of change, sums up the philosophy underlying policymaking at the Park administration across the areas of social innovation, public innovation, local self-government, and communication and co-governance.” — Preface

The Seoul Institute
Originally established by the Seoul Metropolitan Government (SMG) as the Seoul Development Institute in 1992, it was renamed the Seoul Institute (SI) on August 1, 2012. The Institute’s goal is to establish medium- to long-term policy visions for Seoul and to propose social policies on welfare, culture, education, industries, urban management, city planning, transportation, safety and the environment.
The SI’s primary objectives are to improve metropolitan administration through professional research, to improve the quality of life for citizens in Seoul, and to reinforce and sustain the competitiveness of Seoul.
