The combination of all four modes of governance constitutes a co-regulatory governance system. As explained later, it should be noted that these categories represent theoretical ideal types. Overlap and mixed modes occur in practice. 22 Co-Regulating Corporate Social Responsibility Hierarchical Governance Hierarchical modes of governance concern the traditional bureaucratic, command-and-control style of direct government intervention through economic and social regulation. Legally binding standards are prescribed, policies and programs are implemented, and compliance is monitored through a government agency.
To a large degree, the definitional confusion stems from the first finding. Rather than dichotomous “pure forms” of either self-regulation or government regulation, there is now a continuum of hybrid arrangements that reflect varying degrees of government involvement and different public/ private arrangements of rule-making authority and of implementation and enforcement responsibility. This blurring of public and private boundaries is characteristic of emerging co-regulatory systems of governance.
Six key areas define the research scope. First, although the central aim of this book is to understand the broader question of the public sector role in CSR co-regulation, the research is concentrated on the specific case of government response to forest certification. As already noted, this is logical as forest certification is a well-developed and established example of a CSR governance standard. As private environmental governance standards gain institutional strength in other industry sectors, there will be future opportunities to apply the analytical framework presented here in order to compare government co-regulatory responses to several different CSR standards within and across political jurisdictions.
