2021 Conversations - connection and disconnection
The RegNet Conversations series is a keystone event bringing together expertise across the School of Regulation and Global Governance (RegNet). On RegNet’s 20th anniversary, we come together for the theme of Connection and Disconnection.
RegNet is a hub where we collaborate between disciplines to understand how governance and regulation are shaped by connections and disconnections across systems and actors. COVID-19 has redefined the meaning of connection and disconnection; the global pandemic has disconnected us in ways we could not imagine but despite that, we keep finding new ways to connect. Conversations 2021 will host a series of panels aiming to illuminate how connections and disconnections shape outcomes across domains including justice, welfare, and trade.
In three separate panel events, leading experts from across the social sciences will consider questions around the role relationships play in regulation and governance, how current understandings of the regulatory welfare state would benefit from stronger interdisciplinary connections, and how strategic competition is reshaping the prospects for global governance.
