"In recent years the Government of Botswana has retreated in some form from direct production and provision of many goods and services in favour of achieving various policy goals through regulation. This book takes the view of regulation as a form of governance. It is a study of regulation in a particular legal, cultural, economic and political context. It is both descriptive of, and analytical of the effects on Botswana's public policy due to the widespread use of regulation. It assesses the way that regulatory reforms have taken effect and how they affect implementation."
