Date & time
We have made significant progress as a society toward teaching individuals the craft of managing fear productively. We have been less successful, however, in designing regulatory systems that recognize fear as both an enabler and disabler of behavioural and social change.
This series, taking place over four weeks in Nov-Dec, will bring together regulatory scholars and practitioners to explore the positive and negative manifestations of fear and reflect on the strengths and weaknesses of a range of regulatory and governance approaches.
