Using a cross-sectoral approach, the Governance and Regulation Chair sets itself the aim of furthering our understanding of the dynamics, procedures and performance of regulation. It focuses on the technical, organisational and institutional challenges faced by the different players concerned by regulation. Both the topics addressed and the approach adopted, which combines conceptual and operational thinking, provide assurance that the Chair’s research relates to their specific problems, while maintaining a relevant and original vision.
A network of regulatory experts and stakeholders
The Governance and Regulation Chair can rely on:
- A robust multidisciplinary academic network
- Renowned consulting firms giving a strong operational dimension to the Chair’s work
- Regulatory authorities as members of an independent body (the Club of Regulators) working closely with the Chair
- Regulated companies supporting the Chair as patrons
- Representatives from the main French institutions involved in the analysis of public policies
Other actors, and in particular the users, are involved in the Chair’s working groups and meetings.
