The standardization of the public governance model and its translation into national legal systems is one of the most important effects of globalization. Whether it is the will of governments or legislators to ensure more effective, transparent, competitive and quality services, or recommendations from international organizations to foster the rule of law, streamline policies and encourage citizen participation, achieving these goals involves, amongst other things, integrating the regulatory governance model. “Independent Regulatory Agencies” (IRAs) are then considered the most effective tools to regulate public sectors and rationalize public utilities management in this regard. As such, they are seen as institutional instruments capable of playing a role of intermediation and balance between public administrations, economic operators, civil society organizations and citizens.
It was from the 1990s that the model of regulatory governance in its globalized form began to erupt in the law of the Arab countries as an expression of the transition from the “welfare state” to the “regulatory state”. The new model was intended to provide more opportunities for non-governmental actors to engage in economic and social activities. The principles that are now enshrined in the constitutions and legislation of many Arab countries – such as public-private partnership, civil society, good governance, transparency, and free competition – are the result of this shift.
