    Being an Independent Regulator

    Regulators operate in a complex environment at the interface among public authorities, the private sector and end-users. As “referees” of the markets that provide water, energy, transport, communications, and financial services to citizens, they must balance competing wants and needs from different actors. This means that they must behave and act objectively, impartially, and consistently, without conflict of interest, bias or undue influence - in other words, independently. What distinguishes an independent regulator is not simply institutional design. Independence is also about finding the right balance between the appropriate and undue influence that can be exercised through the regulators’ daily interactions with ministries, regulated industries and end-users. This report identifies the critical points where undue influence can be exercised at different moments in the life of a regulator and discusses some of the avenues for developing a culture of independence, including through interactions with stakeholders, staffing and financing.

    Searching for Real Regulatory Independence - RegBlog

    The Deepwater Horizon oil spill in 2010, and the 2008 financial meltdown—whose aftershocks are still reverberating globally—have at least one trait in common: they reflected breakdowns in the regulatory process. This is not to say that the principal industry actors in both catastrophes were mere bystanders, but with better regulatory oversight, the disasters could have been prevented.

    Renforcer l'intégrité du secteur public au Maroc

    Le Maroc est en train de réformer son cadre légal, politique et institutionnel de lutte contre la corruption et de bonne gouvernance. Cette revue fonctionnelle analyse deux institutions marocaines,  l’Instance centrale de prévention de la corruption (ICPC) et l'Institution du Médiateur du Royaume (IMR), dont les mandats respectifs ont été modifiés par la nouvelle Constitution de 2011 afin de renforcer leur rôle dans le système de l’intégrité du pays. Elle examine les cadres législatifs, institutionnels et politiques des institutions, et propose des recommandations afin de permettre à l’ICPC (qui deviendra la nouvelle Instance nationale de la probité, de la prévention et de la lutte contre la corruption) d’assumer le plus efficacement possible son rôle. Ainsi, elle vise à permettre à l’ICPC de jouir pleinement de ses nouvelles prérogatives s’agissant de répression de la corruption. La revue permet également à ce que l’IMR, qui gère les plaintes des citoyens en rapports avec l’administration publique, puisse agir du mieux possible en vue d’altérer positivement les malversations au sein du secteur public. Le rapport analyse la place de ces deux institutions dans le cadre global de gouvernance au Maroc. Il propose des réformes pour améliorer la coopération entre les institutions publiques ainsi qu’avec les acteurs de la société civile dans l’intérêt de la population civile marocaine.

    Open Government Data Review of Mexico - Data Reuse for Public Sector Impact and Innovation

    Mexico has developed an ambitious national open data policy to create value from the use and re-use of government data by the public, private and social sectors. Open government data (OGD) has the potential to spur the digital economy, as well as contribute to more efficient public service delivery and greater public engagement. Mexico has demonstrated its commitment to OGD through its close involvement in international open data initiatives. However, it faces challenges in effectively implementing OGD domestically in a way that makes a greater impact on the economy and society. This would require, notably, institutionalizing open data, understanding the demand for government data, reaching out to potential users and working more closely with local governments. To fully realise the potential of open data, it is crucial that public bodies understand the benefits, are fully behind the project and actively participate in its implementation. This report provides an analysis of Mexico’s policies as well as recommendations for achieving its national objectives and making the most of OGD.
