The summary of the book is reproduced hereafter : “Today the regulation of everything from e-commerce and product safety to air quality is global. To understand how regulation is made and enforced in the multiple domestic and international jurisdictions involved, it is necessary to move beyond conventional sub-fields of law like administrative law and international law. Drawing on contributions from leading scholars with diverse subject and country expertise, Comparative Law and Regulation introduces a new field of legal research geared at understanding the operation of the global regulatory process. The book affords cutting-edge analysis of the entire gamut of regulatory law: rulemaking by bureaucracies, legislatures, and private bodies; oversight by public and private actors; civil and criminal enforcement; and judicial review. The chapters cover over thirty different domestic and international jurisdictions, including the United States, Germany, the European Union, India, China, South Korea, Colombia, the World Trade Organization, and private investor-state arbitral tribunals.
The theoretical and methodological innovations introduced in this book will make it compulsory reading for scholars of public law, comparative law, and international law as well as those working in public policy, political science, and economics. For legal professionals in government agencies and the private sector, it affords both a useful theoretical framing of the multifaceted issues involved in international and comparative regulation and an overview of the legal and technical aspects. “.
