Title A Law and Economics Perspective on Judicial Risk Regulation
Author(s) Zeben, Josephine Van
Source European Journal of Risk Regulation 9 (2018)1. - ISSN 1867-299X - p. 79 - 98.
Publication type Refereed Article in a scientific journal
Publication year 2018

This special issue provides several perspectives on the potential and limits of judicial risk regulation as a mechanism to redress actual and perceived regulatory failures. Central to this inquiry is the legitimacy of the court system to act as a risk regulator, specifically as compared to governmental actors. This article focuses on the question of institutional competency of juridical risk regulators from a law and economics (L&E) perspective. L&E scholarship will be used to help to understand the relative strengths and weaknesses of courts as risk regulators and helps us decide when courts may act as substitute risk regulators and when they are better positioned as complements.
