Korean Democracy in Transition

This chapter discusses the implications of the party merger discussed in the previous chapter. It also looks at the two elections of 1992 and the impact of these for the democratization process in Korea. It argues that in a country like Korea, once the democratization process starts, the process is likely to be driven by the government as a result of the country's unusual past economic development.

Keywords:   democracy, party merger, 1992, democratization process, Korea, economic development
