Regulators are today increasingly involved in transnational cooperations organised at the regional level. Coordination within the EU is a case in point, but there are other many other settings to organize these networks. If some cooperations have a far-reaching scope, others may have more circumscribed goals. They may be responding to the need for a greater sharing of experiences and best practices, focusing on enhancing regulatory harmonization among countries, promoting coherent and consistent rule-making and enforcement, fostering consumer protection, or all of this at the same time. Other interesting questions concern the legal status of these regional networks of regulators, their membership types and modus operandi, the dedicated financial and human resources, the indicators they may put in place in order to qualify and assess their outcomes, as well as the specific challenges encountered.
The purpose of this workshop is to investigate the experiences, across several regions and industries, of different regulatory cooperations worldwide, in order to highlight the trends and the lessons that can be drawn.
