Welcome to the ANZSOG/National regulators community of practice.

The community of practice began as an informal network of Victorian regulators inspired by Harvard Professor Malcolm Sparrow’s ANZSOG workshops.

Buoyed by the strong interest from around Australia, the community of practice has now partnered with ANZSOG and gone national!

We are a genuine community of practice:

  • A bottom-up community of people from across economic, social and environmental regulation and from Commonwealth, State/Territory and local government, brought together by our common interest in learning from the best, sharing knowledge and experience, and helping each other solve common problems
  • A community run by and for practitioners, so for people working directly as regulators and/or managing regulators, and who are committed to supporting better outcomes for citizens
