A new book edited by four Duke University professors examines how crises can reshape regulation and how we can learn to do better. The book’s co-editors are Edward Balleisen, Professor of History and Duke’s Vice Provost for Interdisciplinary Studies; Lori Bennear, the Juli Plant Grainger Associate Professor of Energy Economics and Policy at the Nicholas School of the Environment; Kimberly Krawiec, the Kathrine Robinson Everett Professor of Law; and Jonathan Wiener, the Perkins Professor of Law, Professor of Environmental Policy, and Professor of Public Policy.
The book, Policy Shock: Recalibrating Risk and Regulation After Oil Spills, Nuclear Accidents, and Financial Crises, looks at responses to events in the U.S., Europe, and Japan, and assesses how the events affected laws, regulations, and institutions. (A special discount of 30% off the list price is available from Cambridge University Press until June 1, 2018, by entering the code: Policy17 .)
