The Rule of Law in South Korea by Mo & Brady

The Rule of Law in South Korea by Mo & Brady

Published by Hoover Institution
South Korea—and all of East Asia—has come along way in developing democracy and a free market economy, but weak legal systems cloud its economic and political future. In this book, a group of expert contributors examine the challenges of fully implementing the rule of law in South Korea’s fledgling democracy and market economy. The contributors detail the obstacles that must be overcome, such as corruption in politics and corporate governance and a deep-rooted cultural indifference to the rights of the individual, and offer suggestions on what can—and what should not—be done.

The Rule of Law in South Korea ultimately makes a strong case for legal reform that promotes understanding and education on the importance of the individual, showing that not enough attention has been paid to the sanctity of the individual in the rule-of-law debate. Perhaps even more important, the book points out that education alone is not sufficient and that exemplary behavior from political leaders is essential to move forward toward the rule of law.

Jongryn Mo is a research fellow at the Hoover Institution and an assistant professor in the Graduate School of International Studies at Yonsei University in Seoul, Korea.
David W. Brady is deputy director and senior fellow at the Hoover Institution.
