The purpose of this paper is to analyze the faltering growth and participation of Korean civil society in international development cooperation policy area. Korea joined the OECD's Development Assistance Committee and legislated the Law on International Development Cooperation, and has emphasized the principle of Private-Public Partnerships. However, due to the lack of experience and institutional foundations in the ODA sector, the participation of civil society has been lacking compared to advanced donor states. This paper argues that the causes stem from the structural factors caused by the origins of Korean civil society as a citizens movement, and the characteristics of civil society organizations themselves. The large number of religion based FBOs, the lack of expertise and experience, unstable finances and management have caused civil society organizations to pursue individual goals and funding,
instead of strategically framing a common issue to develop reliability and promote community interests regarding international development cooperation, thus failing to garner support from various policy actors.
