Preface
The study of Korea’s economic and social transformation offers a unique opportunity to better understand the factors that drive development. Within one generation, Korea had transformed itself from a poor agrarian society to a modern industrial nation, a feat never seen before. What makes Korea’s experience so unique is that its rapid economic development was relatively broad-based, meaning that the fruits of Korea’s rapid growth were shared by many. The challenge of course is unlocking the secrets behind Korea’s rapid and broad-based development, which can offer invaluable insights and lessons and knowledge that can be shared wit

Abstract

The issue of corruption has been the first priority agenda in Korea ever since its democratization in 1993. Regarding Criminal Justice Policy in particular, Korea has not only made numerous efforts to improve the legal system designed to deal with corruption of public officials and legal circles but also spent enormous amount of budget to prevent corruption. In essence, rooting out corruption has been the first-priority task for successive democratic governments in Korea. Despite Korea’s slogan of “eradicating corruption” put forth by a number of presidential candidates, the vicious cycle of corruption still persists in Korea.
Corruption normally points to acts of bribery, electoral fraud, and politics-business collusion mostly committed by public officials; it may include other private actors as well. In a world of globalization, frequency and severity of such acts are attempted to be measured through official indexes such as the Corruption Perception Index (CPI) through which a level of transparency in each country is determined.
