Byrokratická bariéra kvality regulace
[Bureaucratic constraint of the quality of regulation]

The paper analyzes an important part of the institutional quality - regulation and studies relation between the regulatory environment and the bureaucratic barriers. The analysis is based on theoretical models of the comparative institutional economics. In the paper, we discuss possibilities of measurement and evaluation of regulation and bureaucracy. We compare the quality of regulatory environment in the EU-25 countries for which we construct specific index. Given principles of the good regulation we characterize basic determinants of the regulatory environment and we try to evaluate how these principles are fulfilled in countries of the EU-25. Additionally, we aim to evaluate the quality of bureaucracy. Finally, we study how the regulatory environment is related to the bureaucratic barriers.
