Book Description

2 Mar 2006 0199299870 978-0199299874
Democratization, globalization, and increased environmental awareness have had a profound impact on the regulation of industry in the energy and natural resources sector. This book analyses the changes in character of the way this industry is regulated, and seeks to make connections with theoretical perspectives on regulation as a major part of the modern legal system.

Part I examines the emergence of alternatives to regulation, such as 'soft law' in developing countries, the European Electricity and Gas Directives of 1996 and 1998, the idea of regulation of company structure as opposed to performance, multi-faceted government alternative regulatory instruments, and market mechanics.

Part II analyses conventional methods of regulation, and how they have evolved, including case studies from the Netherlands, the USA, Singapore, New Zealand, and the UK.

Part III looks at regulatory innovations such as environmental audit, self-regulation, the 'Voluntary Action Plan', private-sector standard setting, and certification.

Part IV examines the role of non-state actors, and their response to national and supranational regulatory changes, and globalization.

Recent shifts in the perception of energy security, failures in energy company corporate governance, and evolving self-regulatory frameworks renders this a timely and worthy examination of the issues facing the energy and natural resources industry today.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, but a bit dry! 15 Mar 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is book was on my reading list for the Masters course, it was also very expensive. However, once the course commenced I hardly used it. I made an effort to read it and found that the books covers a wide range of regulatory system. Perhaps it would have been better to focus on region or country.

4.0 out of 5 stars Better than Expected 6 Dec 2013
By Regulatory Reader - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Better than I had expected. Canvasses the world fairly comprehensively. Some chapters deep dive while others provide overviews and comparative analysis, which is a helpful mix for research purposes.

Does not draw on as much regulatory theory as I would have liked. Being rooted more deeply in literature would have taken this to the next level. As such, some of the finer points of distinction were glazed over.
