Is the SEC a Learning Regulator? Lessons from Proxy Access, Aviv Pichhadze, Critical Research Laboratory in Law & Society, February 3, 2013. Regulation & Governance (Forthcoming)

  • “Analysis of the US Securities and Exchange Commission’s (“SEC”) treatment of the concept of ownership in the federal proxy rules, between 1934 and 2010, suggests SEC systems and procedures may not employ optimal organizational learning. Addressing this, I develop the Learning Regulator Framework, a normative model facilitating organizational learning and allowing regulatory agencies to maintain awareness of, and adaptation to, socio-economic realities in regulated environments, thereby promoting reflective, responsive, relevant, and efficient regulatory frameworks. The relevance of the model to other institutional settings is also considered.”
