NCPAG PJPA 2013-2: Philippine Journal of Public Administration: Spatial dimension of public administration

This study explored the limitations of the economic theory of regulation and finds that: (i) it falls to explain why some regulations pursue ethical and moral objectives; and (ii) it does not provide much normative guidance on how regulation could be used to bring about desirable social outcomes (e.g., social justice). In this light, the ideas of Amartya Sen on social justice are presented as complementary, if not an alternative, approach in explaining and evaluating the pursuit of ethical objectives through regulation. A cursory assessment of the regulatory provisions of the Urban Development and Housing Act of 1992 and their implementation was done to demonstrate the feasibility of using Sen's approach in this type of undertaking. In doing so, content analysis of the law, as well as a review of existing studies by other authors on its implementation, was employed in a summary study approach. The conclusion summarizes the insights from the assessment exercise and asserts the practicability of Sen's approach.
