Appraising regulatory policy

Appraising regulatory policy

(p.13) 1 Appraising regulatory policy
Regulatory Quality in Europe

This chapter situates better regulation policy in the context of the debate on the regulatory state and regulatory governance and presents the key arguments. It charts the development of regulatory reform and regulatory governance in Europe and limits the analysis to better regulation. It then deals with the issue of how to measure the performance of better regulation policy. Having established that better regulation is a public policy, it can be appraised with the same conceptual and methodological tools used for other public policies. Indicators are a component of policy appraisal. The chapter argues that the crucial step is to link measures to conceptual analysis and policy processes.

Keywords:   regulation policy, regulatory governance, Europe, policy appraisal
