FGGA Research Seminar: 2-Capture: The driving forces of regulatory capture
- Tuesday 14 March 2017
- FGGA Research Seminar Series Spring 2017
2511 DP The Hague
In the seminar, Caelesta Braun will present her research project 2-CAPTURE: on the driving forces of regulatory capture, which is funded by a Vidi grant from the Dutch Research Council. The main aim of 2-CAPTURE is to explain the circumstances under which regulatory capture is likely to occur or when regulatory decision-making can be explained by other mechanisms. The project does so by investigating regulatory output, decision-making and political behavior of stakeholders to influence regulatory decision-making. By combining empirical evidence of each of these components for a set of regulatory issues, the project will be able to examine the driving forces of regulatory capture.
