Mary Ivec

Mary’s thesis explores the relational dimensions of regulation through the case study of glyphosate (commonly known as the weedspray RoundUp) in Australia.

By exploring the regulation of glyphosate in terms of the relationships that matter between actors, mechanisms and principles, and why they matter, Mary is interested in a deeper and expanded relational explanation of responsive regulation and its potential application to regulatory theory and practice more broadly.

This is Mary’s mid-term presentation of her doctoral candidature research to date.
