Shifting sands: Regulating in the 21st Century

The 4th Annual Regulators Community of Practice Forum will explore the issues of regulators and regulation and how the brightest are preparing for what's to come in a fresh and interactive way.

With the day steered by a renowned futurist, we will welcome stellar international speaker, blogger and civic activist Professor Alberto Alemanno from HEC Paris and New York University. Professor Alemanno will bring not only his scholarly expertise, particularly in health regulation, but his passion for citizen and stakeholder engagement.

What are the consequences of constant technological disruption, dissolving boundaries and empowered consumers and communities on the traditional institutions and functions of regulation?

The forum is your chance to hear and engage with a diverse range of views and ideas on what the future holds and how the best-in-class regulators are managing both present and future challenges. The conference will feature the perspectives of the brightest young regulators on what the 2020s might hold in store for us all.
