Show Summary Details


This chapter analyses a range of country-specific pathways of re-regulation in relation to markets in healthcare, with a focus on the differences between broadly similar models of re-regulation. It analyses sector-specific institutional contexts from a cross-country comparative perspective based on five countries — Britain, Denmark, Germany, Italy and Norway. Medical governance is closely related to redistributive policies, where the influence of country-specific institutions tends to be pertinent. Medical governance provides a good basis for studying both the dynamics of governance and the difference institutions make.
