About the Author

'Trust is the cement of regulatory governance. This book clearly contributes to our understanding of how trust operates in this field of public policy. It brings from different angles a comprehensive view of its role in regulatory practices, expanding the available analytical capacities to interpret regulatory interactions and exchanges in contemporary policies. In this sense, the book also introduces a suggestive research agenda on trust and regulation with a very important potential for expanding the field in the coming years.' -- Jacint Jordana, IBEI and Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Spain
'A very rich volume that addresses the important but understudied relationship between trust and regulatory regimes. The book fills a gap in the literature and anyone interested in research on the relations between regulators, regulatees and citizens will find this collection an invaluable and essential source of knowledge and ideas. Theoretically, conceptually and empirically it provides new insights.' -- Per Laegreid, University of Bergen, Norway
'Trust in regulatory regimes is an excellent book on the role of trust in relations among regulators, regulated organizations, and citizens. . . Trust in regulatory regimes should definitely appear in the bookcase of all researchers and students of public administration and governance: this book convincingly addresses a number of clearly identified academic challenges while making readers want to explore the new avenues of research opened by its contributors.' -- Journal of Trust Research
'How regulation simultaneously supports and depends on complex and dynamic trust relationships, often by effectively instilling some form of institutionalized distrust, is an intriguing and timely topic that has never been investigated as thoroughly, both conceptually and empirically, as in this fascinating volume.' -- Guido Moellering, Witten/Herdecke University, Germany
