An oil spill has a great impact on the environment and human life. The oil spill is a serious man-made disaster, and is a result of hazard and social vulnerability. This research employs a stakeholder approach by developing a framework for oil spill response. Comparing the Taean oil spill case of Korea and Dalian oil spill case of China, this study analyses the roles of primary stakeholders in the oil spill management, and determines the strengths and weaknesses of the same stakeholder in the two countries. Examination of the nine primary stakeholders, central government, local government, PLA and police, NGOs, community, private sector, victims, media, and natural environment, can help to understand the similarities and differences of the two oil spill management systems, including of the disaster management system.
