Executive Politics and Regulatory Policymaking

As government has grown to encompass many aspects of civil society, an increasingly large portion of lawmaking authority has been delegated to executive agencies that engage in regulatory policymaking. With this increase in delegated authority, numerous questions have emerged regarding how agencies are structured, both internally, and in regards to other political institutions; and how these variations in structure influence public policy. This component of CDSI’s research agenda engages the broad role that the executive branch, including bureaucratic and regulatory agencies have in contemporary democratic society, focusing on how executives oversee and manage bureaucratic agencies, how agencies engage in lawmaking activities, how private interests engage in meaningful self-regulation, and many other questions.
