Towards a better understanding of building regulation
This paper reviews a large body of regulatory literature and applies four major debates to the field of building regulation and control. We find that this field has attracted little attention of regulatory scholars, whilst fields such as the ‘natural’ or ‘occupational’ environment are often addressed in regulatory studies. We furthermore find that studies of building regulation and control often lack theoretical descriptions or applications. We argue that such details are necessary for a better understanding of building regulations and control.
