Consolidation of democracy in South Korea?
2014 (English)Book (Refereed)
Although South Korea has accomplished a democratic transition, democraticconsolidation has not been achieved. The study investigates this notion on thebasis of criteria of democratic consolidation, how the presidents have fulfilledtheir promises on the deepening of democracy and how the Articles in the1987 Constitution on democracy have been implemented. What developmentssupport and disapprove this notion? The interaction between domestic politicsand the implementation of the Constitution during the presidents’ five yearterms in office is analyzed. Great consideration is put on the Confucian impacton politics and the short period of implementing democracy.
