Title: THE KOREA DEMOCRACY BAROMETER SURVEYS 1997-2004. UNRAVELING THE CULTURAL AND INSTITUTIONAL DYNAMICS OF DEMOCRATIZATION
 
Author: Doh Chull Shin and Jaechul Lee
 
Description: South Korea is regarded as the most influential and vigorous new democracy in East Asia. The country has not only transferred power peacefully to an opposition party but has also fully transformed its age-old crony capitalism into a competitive and transparent market economy. Yet the question remains: How much progress has Korea really made in democratizing its authoritarian institutions and its underlying cultural values that for nearly three decades supported the military dictatorships that ruled the country? This study addresses this question by analyzing the Korea Democracy Barometer surveys conducted over the period of 1997-2004. The results of this analysis reveal that, both institutionally as well as culturally, Korea remains far from being a consolidated democracy.
