Political, commercial and economic drivers of health by Sharon Friel

In this sixteen minute speech, Sharon Friel explores a range of different factors that impact on health inequalities around the world. From international trade deals to intellectual property law, she exposes many of the wider determinants of health equity.

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 here.

An interactive tool to help you explore the book by particular themes is available here.
