This chapter explores the extent to which regulatory agencies in the developing world can be considered a relevant institutional innovation for the politics of regulation in these countries. The chapter is organized as follows. The first section concentrates on the political economy of agency creation beyond the occasional reasons that contributed to its formal establishment in many developing countries, particularly during the 1990s, due to coercive, isomorphic, or symbolic mechanisms of diffusion. The second section considers the issue of the independence of regulatory agencies, but only in the context of the developing world, reflecting the contributions to this volume and also previous research on this topic. The final section concludes with a few remarks on the challenges of studying the regulatory state in the South.

Keywords:   regulatory agencies, developing countries, regulatory politics, agency creation, South
