Abstract

This special issue aims to set a course for future inquiry on regulatory enforcement in industrializing countries. With examples from major countries including Brazil, China, and Indonesia, the articles develop four cross-cutting themes: (1) how enforcement and its institutional context vary geographically and temporally; (2) how enforcement is affected by deficiencies in regulatory capacity and autonomy; (3) how civil liability regimes interact with enforcement; and (4) the relationship between enforcement and regulatory instrument choice.

Keywords: pollution, environmental enforcement, regulation, instrument choice, Brazil, China, Indonesia, industrializing countries, regulatory capacity, regulatory autonomy, civil liability

JEL Classification: K32, K23
