Cary Coglianese - achieving regulatory excellence


This is the audio recording from Cary Coglianese’s presentation that took place as part of the RegNet Big Ideas seminar. Please do not reproduce without permission.

Regulators invariably confront society’s most challenging tasks and need to respond in the face of competing demands and interests. What makes a regulator excellent at its work?

In this seminar, Cary Coglianese begins by defining and explicating the attributes of regulatory excellence, and then focusses on what it takes for a regulatory organization to achieve excellence.

He then offers a framework for deploying regulatory strategies and addresses the role for performance measurement in improving regulatory quality.

The seminar draws on a recent international study of regulatory excellence completed at the Penn Program on Regulation.

The slides from the presentation are available here.
