"Professor Heritier has made an extensive and outstanding contribution to the discipline of public policy studies, particularly through the combination of traditional aspects of policy analysis (like decision-making & implementation) with questions of new modes of governance and regulatory analysis. Her theoretical insights about new modes of governance have inspired an entire generation.  Her extensive studies show a wide empirical coverage of policy areas, most particularly in regulatory areas. During her long stay at the European University Institute, in Florence, Italy she supervised a large number of young researchers, who are now spread worldwide and are highly acknowledge researchers themselves” Susana Borras - Copenhagen Business School, Denmark
