The Peripheral Regulatory State

The Peripheral Regulatory State

(p.209) 11 The Peripheral Regulatory State
The Rise of the Regulatory State of the South

Michael W. Dowdle

Oxford University Press

The regulatory state has effectively become a regulatory best practice in the eyes of the international development community. It is characterized by the use of independent regulatory agencies (IRAs) to regulate the diverse regulatory environments of that state. This chapter examines the effectiveness of the IRA model. It considers evidence suggesting that the IRA model, when transplanted to Southern environments, sometimes develop important regulatory functionalities that are different from those associated with the orthodox (US) IRA model. The other dimension that effects how IRAs might operate in Southern environments involves the relationship between the ideological strength of the regulatory epistemology and the web of relevant local social meanings found in that particular environment.
