Regulation has been and still is often discussed in economic theory and politics. Despite this, papers analyzing regulatory measures lack a definition of the term or employ widely differing concepts. In order to remedy this neglect, we give a short survey of various definitions of regulation. Thereupon we consider objects of regulation, institutions responsible for regulation, and methods of regulation as three central aspects which contribute to a systematic description of the term.
