RegNet undertakes interdisciplinary research and education in governance and regulation associated with major social, health and environmental issues. Our work is based on principles of social justice, sustainability and human wellbeing. We test and develop theory, provide rigorous qualitative and quantitative empirical evidence on important issues, and proactively engage in the public and policy debates in Australia, the Asia Pacific region and internationally.
Currently we work in the following thematic areas: Climate, energy & the environment; Law, justice and human rights; Society, safety & health; Trade, investment & intellectual property. We welcome new research directions.
Our Strategic Plan 2016-2020 sets out our vision and aims for the immediate future.
