Summary
  • This collection improves our understanding of the problems associated to accountability in regulatory governance, focusing on audiences, controls and responsibilities in the politics of regulation and through a systematic exploration of the various mechanisms through which accountability in regulatory governance.
  • 'The rise of regulatory governance has given new salience to the old question 'who guards the guardians?' This volume, with contributions by the best scholars in the field, is a true landmark. It provides the first comprehensive and comparative overview of the state of regulatory accountability in Western democracies.' - Mark Bovens, Utrecht University School of Governance, The Netherlands 'Clear conceptual thinking about the accountability of regulators is in short supply. This book offers a major remedy. Qualitative and quantitative depiction of variation among states and types of agencies in accountability up, down and horizontally is in even shorter supply. This book again has a remedy on offer. It is a collection of unusual coherence in its focus on fundamental yet neglected questions. A feast of fine authors to devour these challenges'. - John Braithwaite, Australian National University, Australia 'How can regulatory bodies conciliate the imperatives of autonomy and accountability? To whom are they accountable, for what, by what means and with what kind of standards? Does accountability in the real world equal their accountability on paper? Combining approaches and methods, this path-breaking collection moves beyond normative considerations and offers a clinical view of the accountability relations of a large number of regulators in several policy sectors, in many countries and in the European Union. Equipped with rigorous conceptual lenses and substantiated with a wealth of data, the contributions elegantly show the astonishing diversity and increasing complexity of accountability regimes. By exploring the impact of the 'regulatory state' on accountabilities this book compellingly identifies some major challenges to the quality of democratic life generated by transformations of governance practice'. - Yannis Papadopoulos, University of Lausanne, France

Government accountability
Summary expansion
Through a systematic exploration of accountability in regulatory governance, this collection makes a significant contribution to the existing literature on the subject. Chapters authored by a selection of the most influential figures in the field of regulatory governance address how to introduce political and policy accountability to the actors and institutions involved in the policy process, a key issue in relation to regulatory policy legitimacy. Beyond conventional accountability procedures within the political system, the volume discusses the extent to which more specific accountability tools to communicate with more diverse audiences have emerged. The first section introduces a quantitative approach to measure the actual dimensions of accountability instruments already in place within regulatory agencies, while the second utilises comparative approaches, case studies and theoretical discussions which focus on the diverse problems actors and institutions face to make their activities and procedures more accountable to their constituencies and to society as a whole. The final contributions explore the implications that accountability challenges pose to democratic procedures and global governance processes and discuss how accountability, regulatory governance and democracy are related
