This chapter explores the factors and features that shape choices on regulation. It begins by discussing the structural factors and oppression, and tries to explain why one favours the idea of modes of regulation. A review of social control, support, and the management of consumption in the welfare state is provided. The chapter then briefly addresses the topic of ideologies, discourses, and language, before ending with a discussion of citizenship.
