We’re all regulators: why and how to think broadly about regulation

To be a public sector regulator, you don’t just need to work in an agency with the word ‘regulation’ (or ‘protection’, or ‘safety’) in its title. And you definitely don’t just need to work in compliance and enforcement.

If you’re involved in rules and standards for other bureaucrats; or funding and contracting external bodies; or ensuring procurement processes are followed; or setting fees and charges; or licensing, registering or accrediting particular categories of people; or incentivizing behaviours (‘nudging’) – welcome to the world of regulation.

This seminar will take us on an engaging and stimulating journey through regulation – its scope and rationale, how to think about your place in the regulatory landscape, and why capable professional regulators and fit-for-purpose regulation really matter for good government and improving citizen outcomes.
