March 19-20, 2004
This is a collaborative project between the Center for the Study of Democracy, the Korean Foundation Chair of Korean Studies at the University of Missouri, the East West Center and the POSCO Program at the East West Center in Honolulu. The project assembles an international team of distinguished scholars who are examining citizen attitudes toward democracy and markets in East Asia and the established Western democracies of the Pacific Rim. This research is based on the data from the newest wave of the World Values Survey. The project is directed by Russell Dalton of UC Irvine and Doh Chull Shin of the University of Missouri.
