Special Issue on: "Whither Regulatory Policy Reform?"

Guest Editors: Georg Caspary, USA and Magnus Feldmann, Harvard University, USA

This special edition looks at the state of play of regulatory reform in the post-Washington-Consensus era, as academics and policy-makers increasingly realise the importance of good governance and effective regulation to address key public policy challenges.

Studies of particular countries or cases should focus on the broader international significance and 'replicability' of the main findings. Papers drawing on the experience of developing/transition countries, or with important policy implications for such countries, are particularly welcome.

Subject Coverage
All subjects of regulation are relevant, including (but not necessarily restricted to):
  • The environment
  • International trade
  • Competition policy
  • Utilities regulation
