We invite you to attend the conference on “Improving Risk Regulation: From Crisis Response to Learning and Innovation,” to be held in Paris on 13-14 October.
The latest conference agenda summary (version of 9 September) is accessible through the link at the bottom of this post.
The agenda, further details, and links to register are at: http://www.irgc.org/event/annual-conference-2014/ .
This conference is co-hosted by the IRGC (www.irgc.org ), the OECD Regulatory Policy Division ( http://www.oecd.org/regreform/regulatory-policy/ ), and the Duke University “Rethinking Regulation” program (http://kenan.ethics.duke.edu/regulation/ ).
- The first day addresses how crisis events shape regulatory change and how regulatory institutions can learn from crises. This is the theme of a research project we are leading at Duke University on “Recalibrating Risk: Crises, Perceptions and Regulatory Change” (book forthcoming in 2015).
- The second day addresses how regulatory systems can be designed to learn and improve over time, both exhibiting adaptive policy innovation and stimulating technological innovation.
- Case studies to be highlighted during the conference include the regulation of oil spills, nuclear accidents, financial crashes, pharmaceuticals, and chemicals; the use of behavioral insights and non-government networks in regulation; and more.
- Speakers will come from numerous countries, disciplines, and organizations.
We hope to see you there!
