This chapter considers over-regulation and under-regulation both as potential threats to freedom. It conceives political knee-jerks that see-saw between over- and under-regulation as posing particularly strong threats of domination. Responsive regulation was developed as an integrated and balanced approach to these threats to freedom. Its balance is particularly richly improved by integration with restorative justice. Responsive regulation is often thought of narrowly as an approach to business regulation. This chapter explains what responsive regulation means through discussing the way it was developed in the regulation of a particular human service, aged care.
