The Modern Regulator

The scheduling of this workshop will be dependant on the unfolding coronavirus (COVID-19) response and travel restrictions, particularly given Professor Sparrow is US-based.

Professor Sparrow, from Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government, will guide you through contemporary developments in risk-based regulation, and examine what ‘risk-based’ practice entails in enforcement, regulation and compliance management.

Become better equipped to design regulatory strategies informed by recent developments in the field, and better able to match different classes of risk with different regulatory structures and strategies.

The workshop provides an opportunity for you to clarify your own agencies’ needs and aspirations, and better understand opportunities to refine structures, strategies and tactics.

Excellent, Malcolm is very good at breaking down difficult concepts and presenting them in a simple and relevant way.

What will you learn?

This one-day workshop will start by surveying emerging trends across the regulatory landscape.

Professor Sparrow’s workshop will feature lectures, practical examples and interactive discussion.

The modern regulator modules will explore:

  • the nature of “risk-based” operations in regulatory, law enforcement and other risk control settings
  • how success should be defined and measured in a risk-control setting
  • the challenges of implementing a risk-based approach

Very engaging with a practical focus – I can use almost everything I learned in my work.

Who should attend

  • Mid-to-senior-level managers in law enforcement, social regulation, security, intelligence and other risk-control roles in government. The modern regulator is designed for people who have not attended ANZSOG’s week-long Managing regulation, enforcement and compliance program, but who are keen to sample its themes.
