Abstract and Keywords

This article first lays out a short history of regulation conceived in this broad way. It then considers whether ours is a society that regulates more because it has become a ‘risk society’. Next it uses Gunther Teubner's model of the ‘regulatory trilemma’ and a consideration of the key regulatory mechanisms to review the literature on the finer grain of how regulation works. Finally it returns to the pluralization of regulation as a crucial dynamic in creating spaces where ‘democratic experimentalism’ is emerging as a possibility.

Keywords: risk society, regulatory trilemma, pluralisation, regulation, democratic experimentalism
