The past decade has seen a quickening of the pace and extent of privatisation reforms in developing countries. An associated set of post-privatisation policies has seen the introduction of new and changed regulatory institutions. This book critically reviews regulatory reforms in developing countries, with a particular focus on the strengths and weaknesses of the 'best practice' model of reform, the significance of institutions of regulatory governance, and the impact of post-privatisation governance on development and poverty reduction agendas. The contents are divided into four parts: Part I: Conceptualising Regulation: Governance and Development, Part II: Case Studies in Institutional Reform, Part III: Regulation, Markets and the Poor: Cases from South Africa and the Philippines, Part IV: Capacity Building for Regulation. The contributors are: E.M. Alampay, E.L. Basilio, J. Brown, L. Carino, J.C. Cuaresma, D. Eldridge, B. Goulden, P.E. Legaspi, G. Mackintosh, G. Majone, M. Minogue, K. Müller, A. Ogus, N. Phillips, F. Uys, P. Vass, P. Woodhouse, and Q. Zhang.
