Our story


RegNet carries out transformative research that develops innovative ways of responding to the complex and interconnected challenges of the 21st century. Our work is distinctly interdisciplinary and focuses on improving the governance of major social, economic, environmental and health issues. We embrace forward-looking and big-picture thinking, recognising that regulation is essential to understanding governance in our globalised world.

Our School’s character is unique: we are inclusive and cooperative in our approach while being bold and ambitious in our actions. A diverse network of experts sustains our vibrant community. Working collaboratively, we generate knowledge that informs policy, regulatory practice and public discourse in Australia, Asia, the Pacific and globally.
