The notion of stewardship is common to legal scholars (e.g., constitutional stewardship), environmental scholars (e.g., environmental stewardship) and management scholars (e.g., stewardship theory). The concept has, however, not had much attention in regulatory scholarship. Aotearoa/New Zealand is a world leader, in that it has made ‘regulatory stewardship’ a statutory obligation for all government departments. What regulatory stewardship could look like, and how to achieve it, is not yet crystal clear. In this unit, we explore three models of stewardship, to understand its full potential for regulators in Aotearoa/New Zealand and elsewhere.
