(p.192) The Rise of the Regulatory State in Europe
A Reader on Regulation

G. Majone

Oxford University Press

Privatization and deregulation have created the conditions for the rise of the regulatory state to replace the dirigiste state of the past. Reliance on regulation — rather than public ownership, planning, or centralized administration — characterizes the methods of the regulatory state. This chapter examines the growth of regulation in Europe, at the national and Community levels. It suggests that political accountability can be ensured by various substantive and procedural controls, among which judicial review is especially important. Executive oversight and coordination may be improved by using new tools of public management, such as the regulatory budget or the regulatory clearing house.

Keywords:   privatization, deregulation, Europe, political accountability, judicial review, public management
