Role of non-state actors in regulation

This page in:

There is growing recognition that regulation is not the exclusive domain of the state. The regulatory capacities of non-government actors are increasingly recognized and on occasions formally co-opted by the state. This paper examines the ways in which a variety of economic and civil society actors contribute to the information gathering, standard setting and behavior modification aspects of regulatory control. Particular attention is paid to the international aspects of this contribution and the limitations and advantages of different forms of non-state regulation.

That’s a new working paper by Bridget Hitter on ‘The Role of Non-State Actors in Regulation’ from LSE’s Centre for Analysis of Risk and Regulation (CARR). Also see ‘Business Risk Management Practices: The Influence of State Regulatory Agencies and Non-State Sources.’

Or if you like more provocative titles, another paper from CARR: 'Government by Elicitation: Engaging Stakeholders or Listening to the Idiots?'
