dc.description.abstractThis thesis poses three questions: What is one-party dominance? What factors have been identified as encouraging the development of dominant parties in genuinely democratic systems? Do these characteristics apply to the conservative party in South Korea? This thesis focuses on pork barrel politics, fragmentation of opposition parties, and partisan control of the media as possible factors encouraging one-party dominance. To what extent are these structural advantages that the conservatives might hold in government and society, and could these lead to dominance by the conservative party? The thesis finds that the conservatives and progressives both take part in pork barrel politics and both influence the media; the progressive party is more fragmented than the conservatives and this gives the conservatives an advantage, but only a weak one.en_US
