Bookshelf - Regulatory Theory: Foundations and Applications
The Regulatory Institutions Network (RegNet) at The Australian National University has been a leader in the development of new ideas and approaches to the study of regulation for 15 years.
Regulatory Theory: Foundations and Applications brings together more than 40 scholars who have been associated with RegNet during this time.
Each author deals with a core concept and/or field of regulation, describing its evolution, analysing its assumptions and problems and identifying ways in which regulatory theory might be advanced.
The book’s coverage includes the social-psychological foundations of regulation, theories of regulation such as responsive regulation, smart regulation and nodal governance, compliance, legal pluralism, risk, accountability, globalisation and regulatory capitalism, as well as analyses of various fields of regulation including environment, crime, human rights, investment, migration and tax.
Regulatory Theory is the first ANU Press title that features an interactive contents page. It divides chapters into key theories, concepts, methods and psychological foundations, which enables readers to navigate to chapters in their area of interest or find key readings in regulatory theory.
Aimed at practitioners, postgraduate students and those interested in regulation as a cross-cutting theme in the social sciences, Regulatory Theory is the ultimate contribution to regulatory scholarship.
