Martin Shapiro, Deliberative, Independent Technocracy v. Democratic Politics: Will the Globe Echo the E.U, 68 Law & Contemp. Probs. 341 (2004)
The article discusses the issue of technocracy and democracy as the structure of transnational administrative law. This article defines the building blocks of administrative law namely regulation, the tension between democratic control of public policy and the delegated legislation. When all of these building blocks are taken into account, future transnational regulatory regimes are likely to arise in relatively high-technology or otherwise complex spheres of activity.
