in Regulatory quality in Europe
Abstract only
Log-in for full text

This chapter assesses better regulation policies in Europe by looking at the evolution of concepts, the role of new regulatory quality tools in processes of policy formulation and the question of measurement of quality. The conclusion is that measurement should not proceed by way of decontextualised scorecards, league tables and traffic light systems. The institutionalisation of better regulation policy is still low and the variance across the EU too high. The chapter discusses how indicators can contribute to the process of institutionalisation and ‘learning by monitoring’. Finally, it relates better regulation to contrasting images of regulatory governance and concludes that this policy has evolved from a set of technical tools. It has entered the territory of politics.
