About the Journal

  1. The Fourth Industrial Revolution and the impact of the pandemic have created many regulations along with social changes, and these phenomena are demanding fundamental changes in human life. Amidst this uncertainty, various national policy experiments are being attempted, but socially acceptable and agreeable policies are not visible and are rapidly expanding into social problems.
    This phenomenon is causing social conflicts between policies such as the state and the market, inclusion and exclusion, universality and selection, and policies that effectively respond to various social regulation issues along with the task of presenting a long-term and fundamental alternative model in accordance with social changes. It is time to present institutional alternatives. Furthermore, at a time when climate change, population aging, and infectious disease and disaster crises are threatening the sustainability of society, we will make this journal a medium that connects the present and subsequent generations to a better life.
  2. At the core, analyzes, and provides direction to regulation issues that are being discussed internationally.
  3. Detail with fields such as life, culture, and policy on the social  issues.

  • Purpose: In this study, the relationship between Using Reference Groups, Service Belief, Self-regulation, Vocational Calling, and Autonomy was investigated to analyze the factors affecting the reduction of job stress of Korean Hair-beauty Shop Workers. In addition, this study aims to analyze whether Social Support has a moderating effect on the relationship between Job Stress, Using Reference Groups, Service Belief, Self-regulation, Vocational Calling, and Autonomy. The purpose of this study is to help reduce the job stress of Korean hair salon workers and to contribute to vitalization of the beauty industry by analyzing the relationship between various factors in an integrated way. Method: This study was conducted for Korean Hair-beauty Shop Workers, and analyzed data were collected by distributing questionnaires to hair beauty shops and beauty associations and organizations nationwide. Empirical statistical analysis was performed using SPSS 25.0 program, and frequency analysis, reliability and validity analysis were performed. Multiple regression analysis was performed 4 times by defining the dependent variable stress as 4 factors, and moderating effect analysis was performed to find out the influence relationship of social support. Results: First, Using Reference Groups(β=-.309, p<.001), Service Belief(β=-.248, p<.001), Autonomy(β=-.222, p<.001), Vocational Calling(β=-.117, p<.001) factors have a significant negative(-) effect on job stress. Second, Service Belief(β=-.271, p<.001), Autonomy(β=-.209, p<.001), Using Reference Groups(β=-.089, p<.05) factors have a significant negative (-) effect on Personal Stress. Third, Using Reference Groups(β=-.365, p<.001), Self-regulation(β=-.202, p<.001), Autonomy(β=-.160, p<.001), Service Belief(β=-.144, p<.001) factors have a significant negative(-) effect on Customer and Work stress. Fourth, the factors of Service Belief(β=-.294, p<.001), Using Reference Groups(β=-.280, p<.001), and Autonomy(β=-.235, p<.001) have a significant negative(-) effect on Environment Stress. Finally, in the effects of Using Reference Groups, Service Belief, Self-regulation, and Autonomy on Job Stress, the moderating effect of Social Support was found to be statistically significant. Conclusion: Using Reference Groups, Service Belief, Self-regulation, and Autonomy were found to have a significant negative effect on Job Stress. In particular, Using Reference Groups, Service Belief, and Autonomy had a significant influence on all sub-factors of Job Stress, and Using Reference Groups had the greatest influence, con-firming that it was the most important variable for hair-beauty shop workers. It was confirmed that Hair-beauty shop workers with high Social Support had lower job stress as their Perceptions of Professionalism increased than Hair-beauty shop workers with low social support. Specifically, the negative influence of Using Reference Groups, Service Belief, Self-regulation, and Autonomy on Job Stress was larger in the group with high Social Support than the group with low social support. In order to make Hair-beauty shop workers less stressful in performing their jobs, enhancing their own professionalism is a significant means, but the manager of the hair beauty shop respects, considers, cares, and treats members intimately, Informational Support should be provided, and appropriate compensation should be provided for the job.

  • Purpose: The Supreme Court changed its existing position on the provisions of the housing trespassing offense for 2021 and 2022 through a consensus decision. In 2021, if a part of the co-resident enters the co-living house according to the normal access method with the realistic consent of the current resident in the absence, the establishment of the crime of trespassing is denied even if it is against the presumed will of the other resident who is absent. . In 2022, if you enter a restaurant where the public is freely allowed to enter without a restraint from the business owner, even if it seems that the business owner would not have consented to the entrance if he had known the actual purpose of entry, the purpose of this is not to constitute a crime of trespassing. . According to the precedent, the legal benefit of protection for the crime of trespassing is ‘the de facto tranquility of the dwelling’. The purpose of this study is to examine the interpretation and judgment standards regarding the legal interests of protection against trespassing, and to consider trespassing, which is the act of trespassing. Method: Article 16 of the Constitution of the Republic of Korea states, “All citizens shall not be infringed upon their freedom of residence. When a residence is seized or searched, a warrant issued by a judge at the request of the prosecutor must be presented.” The crime of trespassing is a component that guarantees the tranquility of an individual's residence so that the freedom of residence stipulated by the Constitution is not violated. For this purpose, in order to form smooth relationships with various beings in society as a social being, human beings must be guaranteed that their private space is protected and that they can live peacefully without external intrusion. To this end, first, I would like to review the contents of the Supreme Court precedent on the crime of trespassing. Second, the current status of punishment for trespassing is reviewed through a comparative review of foreign laws on trespassing. Third, we examine the legal benefits of protection against trespassing. Fourth, the criteria for judging the crime of trespassing are reviewed. Lastly, based on the discussion so far, I would like to suggest the direction of the legislation on the punishment for trespassing. Results: The starting point of the discussion of the crime of trespassing lies in the interpretation of the interests of protection. The representative theories are the claim of ‘housing rights’ and ‘the theory of defacto serenity’, but precedents adopt the doctrine of the theory of defacto serenity. As for the degree of protection for the crime of trespassing, the crime of danger and the crime of infringement are opposed to each other. The interpretation of these precedents shows a lot of changes in the protection and interest of the crime of trespassing, the meaning of the infringement, the timing of the commencement of execution, and the timing of implementation. Conclusion: The reason for the existence of the crime of trespass is an indispensable prerequisite for the pursuit of happiness and the enjoyment of human dignity and value through the tranquility of private life. However, there are many cases where the crime of trespassing is applied and abused for other purposes rather than contributing to the protection of personal privacy, which is the original purpose, and a logical solution should be sought for its interpretation. Therefore, it is necessary to explore the legislative direction by analyzing the decision of the Supreme Court of the Supreme Court on the crime of trespassing.

  • Purpose: The purpose of this study was to examine and understand the structural relationship between environmental awareness level, clean beauty cosmetics awareness, and repurchase behavior among Generation MZ, and investigate the regulating effect of consumer responsibility perception. Recently, as the consumers' interest in environmental protection has grown, it was intended to help the development of new products of clean beauty and the development of the cosmetics market, which is emerging as a new trend, thereby providing the basic data to consumers and fans of future marketing strategies. Method: For the subject of this study, it was intended to use the SPSS 25.0, AMOS 22.0 program for 523 copies of online questionnaires in Seoul, Gyeonggi, Incheon areas and non-metropolitan area to verify the research question for Generation MZ who have purchased clean beauty cosmetics at least once and analyzed them. The exploratory factor analysis and reliability analysis were performed to secure the validity and reliability of the scale, and the Pearson correlation analysis was performed to confirm the correlation between major variables. The regulating effect analysis was performed through path analysis, and a multi-group comparative path analysis was performed to confirm the regulating effect. Results: As a result of the analysis performed, the level of environmental awareness had a positively significant effect on the perception of clean beauty cosmetics(𝛽=.492, p<.001) and intention to repurchase(𝛽=.086, p<.05), while the clean beauty cosmetic perception also had a positively significant effect on the repurchase behavior and intention(𝛽=.651, p<.001). That is, the higher the level of environmental awareness, the higher the level of awareness and repurchase behavior for clean beauty cosmetics. In particular, the level of environmental awareness was found to be a factor that can increase the intention to repurchase by raising the level of awareness of clean beauty cosmetics. Conclusion: Based on the results of this study, it turned out that the higher the environmental awareness level, the higher the level of awareness of clean beauty cosmetics or the level of repurchase behavior. It is meaningful for identifying the preferences of Generation MZ in the clean beauty cosmetics market, which has been gradually expanding since COVID-19, and presenting products and effective marketing strategies accordingly.

  • Purpose: The purpose of this study is to understand the effect of police force on crime. To discuss in more detail, it is intended to understand the change in the number of crimes caused by the police's new police box. Among the various variables that measure police force, police substations such as police constabulary and police box are important variables. In particular, if the police force is improved through the opening of a new police box, crime suppressive effects are also expected to increase. Therefore, the purpose of this study is to compare the difference between the number of theft and violent crimes caused by the police's new police box. Method: The data used in this study are data on theft and violence in a city of 500,000 people located in Gyeongsangbukdo region. More specifically, a specific administrative dong(Gupyeong-dong in Gumi City) of the city are subject to analysis. Data for a total of 39 months from 2012(January) to 2015(May) were analyzed. More specifically, this study compared and analyzed the number of thefts and violent crimes that occurred before and after the opening of the police box in October 2013. In this study, a T-test was attempted for average comparison. Results: As a result of statistical analysis, it was confirmed that the police force has the ability to suppress crimes in this study. In many existing police studies, it is understood that the police force has a positive or meaningless effect on crime. In addition, few previous studies have identified the relationship between the establishment of new police substations and crime. Conclusion: Through this study, it is an important result showing that the establishment of a new police box by the police has a suppressive effect on crime. As shown in this study, it can be seen that the newly established police box statistically significantly reduced theft and violent crime. In other words, police forces have reduced crime. This result is important evidence to support the discussion of existing classical criminology and neoclassical criminology. The theory of inhibition developed in classical criminology is understood as an important mechanism by which police can suppress criminals. In particular, it is understood that the establishment of a police box has in-creased the fear of punishment for criminals. In addition, based on neoclassical criminology, it is understood that the establishment of a police box would have worked to strengthen surveillance and increase the risk of punish-ment. Based on the results of this study, more policy discussions should be held to maximize the effect of reducing and inhibiting crime opportunities by establishing more small police boxes than large-scale police substations.

  • Purpose: With the focus on Jean Rhys's Wide Sargasso Sea, the author shows how women were possessed by men as objects, what was expected of women as men's property, and the punishment imposed on women who do not meet those expectations in the Victorian era. Following the Industrial Revolution, women also had a desire to live by choosing what they wanted with their own free will, not as the property of men, but society only gave them the role of the angels in the house obeying men and taking care of the family and if this expectation is not met, they were portrayed as madwomen and discarded by men. Method: First, it will be discussed how women at the time, represented as Annette and Antoinette, married men as objects, and what men expected of women as wives. Second, it will be discussed how women were punished when they did not act as submissive wives deviating from what the society of the time expected of women, such as yelling, swearing, drinking, or expressing sexual desire; and why they were treated as madwomen and imprisoned like Annette and Antoinette who were chosen and later discarded by Mason and Rochester. Third, it will be examined how Annette and Antoinette discarded by Mason and Rochester were judged as madwomen and imprisoned, and how they were punished for behavior beyond what the society of the time expected of women. Results: Annette shouted, criticized, and ridiculed Mason when her son died because Mason ignored her thought of leaving Coulibri. In return, she was sexually harassed by black people; her daughter Antoinette was portrayed as a madwoman to an extent that she even thought, 'This is not my mother'; and Antoinette was portrayed as a madwoman who laughed out loud like crazy and hit stones with her fists for the reason that she ex-pressed her sexual desire and lost her chastity before marriage, and were imprisoned by Mason and Rochester respectively. Conclusion: Victorian English society made women men’s property and never tolerated women who were not obedient to men or invaded men's domains and tried to dominate them. Seeing that the thoughts, desires, and wills of women at that time represented as Annette and Antoinette through the “Wide Sargasso Sea”, the author thinks that even in our present day, it is worth considering whether our society make someone's thoughts, desires, and will crazy and punish them for reasons of order maintenance or public interest.
