ABSTRACT

This paper developed a model for policy problem structuring and applied it to a case study. After classifying the factors, which affect the problem definition, into ideology, interests, and context, we analyzed how the actors (namely, conservative and progressive parties) have defined the contents of economic democratization. Using a discourse and frame approach, we discussed how the economic democratization, which had been triggered by the alleyway trade protection and the SSM regulation in 2010, have transformed and become a concrete policy as it went through the general election and presidential election in 2012 and the presidential election in 2017. Our major finding is that the discourse of economic democratization in the Korean society has continuously changed by time and the actors, and that it has revolved around three themes: reform of chaebol economy, fair trade and antitrust (market order), protection of small businesses and traders.
