Despite the meltdown caused by deregulation in the financial sector, the Barroso Commission continues to push Better Regulation as delivering light-touch, business-friendly lawmaking.

This report explains the ins and outs of the Better Regulation agenda, and answers many of the questions raised by this programme that it is claimed will improve the EU’s legislative framework. Is the Better Regulation agenda a real way of improving EU governance? Can it add something extra to the work of the European institutions and Member States? Will it change the relationship between stakeholders and their relationships with citizens?
