Val Braithwaite - From responsive regulation to regulatory authoritarianism: What happened?

Income tax attribute to Alan Cleaver

In this seminar Professor Valerie Braithwaite uses examples from her research on tax compliance and child protection to explain how the central ideas of responsive regulation have been challenging to implement in the Australian context. Australian governments have been poor in listening to dissidence respectfully and embracing criticisms of regulatory shortcomings to make regulatory systems work better, while at the same time, showing resolution to enforce standards in the public interest. Professor Braithwaite argues for a better understanding of motivational posturing in regulatory responses to increase voluntary compliance.
