Show Summary Details


This chapter focuses on the debate over accountability, procedures, and fairness with respect to regulation, placing the regulator, typically in the form of the ‘regulatory agency’, at the heart of discussions. It considers how polycentric and ‘decentred’ understandings of regulatory regimes expose the inherent limitations of such narrow debates. It also explores different accountability regimes and their inherent trade-offs.

Keywords: accountability; procedures; fairness; regulation; regulatory agency; regulatory regimes
