dc.description.abstract Because of recognition of the dearth of research into policy networks in tourism, the case study method was used to investigate a network in smart tourism policymaking (STP) in Korea. Data were collected from in-depth interviews with two groups of participants and relevant documents, which were reviewed to confirm consistency of findings. This study revealed features of networks in tourism policymaking (TP) and STP. TP and STP networks in Korea were characterized by the institutional structure of administrative agencies, their dominance, the lack of balance in information exchanges between public and private sectors despite the significance of the private sector. The findings suggest that effective TP requires strategies that use multiple networks across cutting agencies or industries, facilitate interactions and sustain communication with the private sector. This study implies that defining a policy agenda clearly and setting up a framework for policy formulation are essential for effective TP. en_US
