Rules, rules, rules, rules : multilevel regulatory governance by G. Bruce Doern( )

14 editions published between 2000 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,744 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The dynamics of multi-level regulatory governance are ever-changing, not just in a North American context, but in a global one as well. Rules, Rules, Rules, Rules, clarifies the nature, causes, and dynamics of levels of regulatory governance in, or affecting, Canada. Edited by G. Bruce Doern and Robert Johnson, this collection makes conceptual and practical contributions to the debate over what kinds of principles and institutional approaches can resolve the problems of multi-level regulatory governance. This is the first text to provide an integrated discussion of key politico-institutional issues such as smart regulation, innovation, social and economic regulatory governance, accountability and transparency in Canada through a study of the multi-level regulatory interactions that the nation must function within. Rules, Rules, Rules, Rules considers various sectors where rule-making spans all or most of the four levels of jurisdiction - international, federal, provincial, and city or local - in areas such as food safety, investment and trade, forestry, drinking water, oil and gas, and emergency management. A central argument of the collection is that the pressure to merge, collapse or rationalize levels of regulation is mainly driven by business interests, liberalized trade ideas, and related technological changes. Economic concerns about Canada's declining productivity compared to the U.S. are also discussed, as are issues of security, terrorism, and core business and economic concerns in the post-911 era
Strategic science in the public interest : Canada's government laboratories and science-based agencies by G. Bruce Doern( )

10 editions published between 2000 and 2016 in English and held by 1,693 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The past twenty years have seen considerable shifts in 'government science' - that is, in the way the state funds, supports, regulates, conducts, and uses scientific and technological activity. Focusing on federal labs and agencies, Strategic Science in the Public Interest explores how these labs have been located within, and often buried by, the larger commercially focused federal innovation agenda." "Bruce Doern and Jeffrey Kinder examine four labs whose mandates deal with the Alberta oil sands, environmental technologies, wildlife research, and mining and metals, respectively. The authors use these cases to explain why a better middle-level approach to analysis is needed for strategic government science that is centred on the public interest."--Jacket
Power switch : energy regulatory governance in the twenty-first century by G. Bruce Doern( )

12 editions published between 2000 and 2016 in English and held by 1,595 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Focusing on the key institutions and complex regimes of regulation, Bruce Doern and Monica Gattinger look at specific regulatory bodies such as the National Energy Board, the Alberta Energy and Utilities Board, and the Ontario Energy Board. They also examine the complex systems of rule making that develop as traditional energy regulation interacts and often collides with environmental and climate change regulation, such as the Kyoto Protocol on reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Power Switch is one of the first accounts in many years of Canada's overall energy regulatory systems."--Jacket

The National Research Council in the innovation policy era : changing hierarchies, networks and markets by G. Bruce Doern( )

11 editions published between 2000 and 2016 in English and held by 1,460 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this first in-depth examination of the governance of the National Research Council of Canada (NRC) in over twenty-five years, G. Bruce Doern and Richard Levesque show how the agency's history is interwoven with the evolution of Canada's economic and industrial development and with the fostering of science at Canada's universities, in industry, and within the federal government. Using a policy and institutional approach, the authors demonstrate the ways in which the NRC has had to simultaneously absorb significant budgetary and personnel cuts and become, in its own structure and operations, an innovating institution that helps support and facilitate an innovating Canadian economy - one increasingly characterized by knowledge-based industries. By reconfiguring itself in terms of its institutional mix of hierarchies, networks, and markets, the NRC has had to confront and change its own traditions, yet maintain itself as a complex government agency that still values research for its own sake as a public good
Changing regulatory institutions in Britain and North America by G. Bruce Doern( )

11 editions published between 1998 and 2008 in English and held by 1,440 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The world of regulatory institutions has been in a state of flux for the last two decades, and valuable lessons can be learned from a comparative focus on the nature and causes of institutional change and reform in the regulatory agencies and institutions of the United States, Canada, and Great Britain."--BOOK JACKET. "The contributing authors, mainly political scientists and legal scholars but also practising regulators, make the case for a much broader conceptual view of regulation, arguing that it is increasingly necessary for key regulatory interests - business and consumers - to understand regulation in terms of an interplay among four regimes: sectoral, framework, intra-cabinet, and international. They also explore inter-regime regulatory institutional relations through case studies to demonstrate how regulatory institutions respond to competing regulatory requirements and to tensions between sectoral utility regulators and competition and environmental regulators."--BOOK JACKET. "The book seeks to provide students with a work that focuses on the political and institutional dimensions of regulation, to complement existing studies from the economic and legal perspective."--BOOK JACKET
Governing the energy challenge : Canada and Germany in a multi-level regional and global context by Burkard Eberlein( )

13 editions published between 2000 and 2016 in English and held by 1,221 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As energy prices continue to soar, there is an equally growing interest in how better to manage and regulate energy sources and their production. Governing the Energy Challenge is a comparative study between Canada and Germany that features essays by leading energy and public policy specialists from both countries. It identifies numerous strategies to produce more efficient and sustainable energy by revealing the ways in which Germany, as a member of the European Union, is more advanced in dealing with multi-level governmental tensions and sustainability constraints than Canada has as a member of NAFTA. Paying particular attention to the relationship between environmental study, climate change issues, and economic market reforms, this volume analyses the influence that the energy sector and multi-level institutional arrangements have on energy governance. The contributors provide valuable information on the formation of energy policy, offering insights into the growing differences between countries who are members of NAFTA and the European Union."--pub. website

Risky business : Canada's changing science-based policy and regulatory regime( )

8 editions published between 2000 and 2017 in English and held by 776 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Risky Business is a comprehensive look at Canada's science-based policy and regulatory regime. It asks what risks Canadians might be exposed to as fiscal pressures strain the capacity of regulators in areas such as food, drugs, pesticides, fisheries, and the environment. The first part of this book focuses the reader's attention on diverse and major themes and issues that pervade science-based regulatory regimes today. The second part suggests a framework for analysis and endeavours to present both sympathetic and critical perspectives on the inner-workings of regulatory departments and agencies in the area of the protection of human and environmental health and safety. Covering such topics as the organizational evolution of regulatory agencies, regulatory bodies' changing sources and levels of funding, a review of the independence of science, and the increased potential for realization of risk, these essays point to the need for these regulators to operate with openness and accessibility in order to maintain public confidence. Indeed, the contributors argue that this openness is crucial to both democratic governance and the development of innovative knowledge economies
