Editorial Reviews

Review

Institutions and Incentives in Regulatory Science is essential reading for people interested in how institutions affect regulatory agencies’ abilities to make decisions based on objective interpretations of scientific evidence of risks to health, safety or the environment. (Randall Lutter, Resources for the Future)

A powerful and disturbing account of the biases and uncertainties in regulatory science. Fortunately, the authors offer promising reforms to buttress the integrity of science in the midst of the politics of rulemaking. (John D. Graham, Dean, School of Public and Environmental Affairs, Indiana University)

Provocative and timely, Institutions and Incentives in Regulatory Science raises crucial questions for anyone interested in science and public policy. In the abstract, everyone agrees that legitimate policy making depends on both credible science as well as on political and moral judgment. But in practice, as the cases in this book engagingly show, the challenge lies in discerning the appropriate roles for science and politics—and then keeping each in their respective places. Few challenges are more central to contemporary regulatory policy over matters as varied as climate change, biodiversity, and toxic pollution. (Cary Coglianese, University of Pennsylvania)

Institutions and Incentives in Regulatory Science explores fundamental problems with regulatory science in the environmental and natural resource law field. Each chapter covers a variety of natural resource and regulatory areas, ranging from climate change to endangered species protection and traditional health-based environmental regulation. The contributors in this volume address how institutions for regulatory science should be designed in light of the inevitable misfit between the political or legal demand for regulatory action and the actual state of evolving scientific knowledge.
