In this ten minute speech, Christian Downie explores how ideas about regulating people and activities spread across the globe, and not always to positive effect. From intellectual property rights to emissions trading, he discusses how we regulate on a global scale and which countries are likely to be playing a leading role in the future.
This speech was recorded as part of ’21st Century Regulation and Governance Challenges’ on 21 June 2017 at the School of Regulation and Global Governance (RegNet), ANU.
This event celebrated the launch of RegNet’s new book Regulatory Theory: Foundations and Applications. The book, edited by Prof Peter Drahos, is a collection of deep and broad reflections on all things regulation and governance. Authored by RegNet academics past and present, Regulatory Theory establishes the foundations and applications of the RegNet approach to studying regulation and governance, based on principles of social justice, environmental sustainability and human wellbeing.
Regulatory Theory: Foundations and Applications is available for free download or purchase.
