Reuters Institute fellow Chan Jung Park explores in his new paper how regulatory bodies in United Kingdom and South Korea decide on fairness and impartiality issues. He explores the extent to which a suspicion of political influence is substantiated in the decisions taken by the Korean regulator (KOCSC) and compares the results from the UK’s equivalent body, Ofcom.
The aim of the study is to draw answers to the questions about how regulatory organisations can best operate in order to implement fair and impartial decisions on complex, disputed and political issues. The paper concludes with some suggestions for the improvement of KOCSC.
