School of Regulation and Global Governance (RegNet)

This decade has been described as an ‘Era of Disruption.’ The world has witnessed large scale disruptions across many areas, including in global politics, economic theories and environmental conditions. How can regulation and global governance respond effectively to these disruptions? And how can regulators and other actors work to disrupt problematic governance regimes or use disruptions to achieve helpful reforms?

This special RegNet Series, taking place over four weeks 30 October – 22 November, will bring together regulatory scholars and practitioners to explore this theme of Disruption and reflect on a range of contemporary regulatory and governance approaches dealing with health equity and public policy, energy policy, capitalism and institutions, and technology and trade in Asia and the Pacific.
