Product description

Regulation affects all aspects of life yet a detailed understanding of how to create and maintain effective regulation remains challenging.

Recalibrating Behaviour: Smarter Regulation in a Gobal World addresses some complex regulatory questions and contributes to the ongoing task of improving regulatory outcomes.

The book contains 15 chapters divided into four parts:

  1. Global Connectedness
  2. The Public Voice and Consumer Behaviour
  3. The Careful Art of Reducing Uncertain Outcomes
  4. The Institutions of Regulatory Regimes

Each chapter provides recommendations or frameworks pertaining to how New Zealand could achieve smarter regulation. This book develops the detailed issues and discussion that laid the foundation for the New Zealand Law Foundation’s Regulatory Reform Project, found in Learning from the Past, Adapting for the Future: Regulatory Reform in New Zealand (2011).

This text will be of interest to those who are interested in improving regulation for a globally connected New Zealand.
