Democratic Consolidation in the Republic of Korea: Progress and Challenges
Monday, February 2, 2009
On February 2, the Center for Northeast Asian Policy Studies at Brookings, the Asian Studies Center at the Heritage Foundation and the Seoul National University’s Institute for Korean Political Studies and the Political Science BK21 Project will host a symposium to examine the progress South Korea has made over the last 20 years in building its democratic institutions, and in areas in which the system can be improved to better reflect the will of the voters.
A distinguished panel of Korean and American experts will analyze how popular will is conveyed to the political system; how the political system operates and uses these inputs; how the political system interacts with Korea’s economy; and how the political system affects its foreign relations. After each panel, participants will take audience questions.
C&M International's Amy Jackson
will be a member of the panel, "How Democracy Affects the Economy."
