About Better Regulation

The discourse of 'Better Regulation' is a hot topic, intimately associated with the drive for cost savings and a more efficient economy. In the UK and in the EU, rule-makers have lately endeavoured to achieve a more satisfactory balance between the demands of proper protection from market failure and inequity on the one hand, and commercial freedom and the potential for innovation on the other. But who is the regulator listening to, and what effect does this have on the regulatory pattern governing the integrating EU market? What is best practice in the matter of regulatory assessment. The essays in this collection explore these and other questions and will foster greater understanding of UK and EU regulation, the accountability issues involved, and problems of enforcement. It is no coincidence that since efforts to construct a Constitution for Europe have stalled the attention of policy-makers, politicians and the business community has turned instead to the quest for Better Regulation - or perhaps, it might be said, a "Better European Union".

Reviews

“…an in-depth study of Better Regulation. This series of books…once again demonstrates its mettle with serious academic study and scientific rigour.” –  Frederik Ronse, Agence Europe S.A., No. 9556/757

“This essay collection is an interesting, timely and significant contribution to academic and policy debates about better regulation...a major contribution to current debates about regulatory reform and will be essential reading for students, academic researchers and policy-makers.” –  Bettina Lange, Public Law

Better Regulation brings together academics and practitioners from various backgrounds, who do a wonderful job of offering deeper insights into the tensions within the better regulation debate.

The remarkable breadth of the topics covered by the book does not allow them all to be addressed adequately in this review. Yet, it is enough to say that the book ... is interesting reading for all academics interested in regulation and/or involved in political decision-making.

” –  Laura Tilindyte, Maastricht Journal of European and Comparative Law, Volume 16, Number 4
