DESCRIPTION

This unit explores regulation as a type of public policy. The unit examines theoretical approaches to understanding regulatory policy and what distinguishes regulatory policies from other types of public policy such as redistribution and distribution. In addition to exploring traditional approaches to regulation and self-regulation of industry for economic, social and environmental purposes, the unit pays particular attention to the politics surrounding regulatory issues, including both interest- and morals-based demands for activities to be regulated. It explores the dilemmas posed by approaches to the regulation of criminal activity, and attempts to regulate ‘sinful’ behaviour such as prostitution and drug-taking, as well as the consequences of the demonisation of areas of activity such as waste management, including the effectiveness of international prohibition regimes
