Summary/Abstract: While implementing reforms in the above areas, individual countries are confronted not only with conflicts of interest between various interest groups but also with attempts at misusing the reforms for the benefit of private lobbies. This is where science should tackle the important task of developing and using appropriate instruments to conduct a theoretical analysis of the issue.
