  • Abstract Abstract
    The purpose of this dissertation lies in a comparative study of the similarities and differences in electoral systems selection processes between two new democracies in East Asia, Taiwan and South Korea. We hope that by this research one can understand the complex decision-making processes in choosing a electoral system within the context of democratic transition; on the other hand, with the findings of this study, we also try to explore the possibility of Taiwan and South Korea’s electoral system reform in the future.
    We suggest that factors such as history dependence, political situation and political agenda in democratization, party system, and political actors all has a role in the process of selecting a electoral system.
     Keywords: comparative politics, electoral system selection, electoral system reform, Taiwan’s electoral systems, South Korea's electoral systems
