By utilising the lenses of institutions and culture -- examining the relationship between regulator and regulated, dominant regulatory style, and interaction with the institutions of government -- this book challenges the contemporary wisdom that recommends holistic and integrated institutional forms that result in the decimation of existing cultural identifications. No sense of bureaucratic mission can be established where cultural identifications have been destroyed, regardless of the ingenuity of the institutional form adopted. The absence of such bureaucratic mission results in green bureaucracies that are likely to fail in the pursuit of organisational goals. Examining motivations shows why cultural identifications within an organisation must be congruent with institutional structures so that these identifications can be established.
