Creation : Design in the second half of 2020, group formation throughout 2021.
Composition : Some thirty academics from all the G20 countries, interested in how regulation has been implemented in a given national context.
Themes : The adoption of a regulatory model based, on the one hand, on the independence of the institutions that manage it and, on the other hand, on the principle of competition between operators, is promoted by the OECD and many other international institutions; its implementation, however, depends on the specific historical and institutional features of each country. The result is a wide variety of regulatory systems in practice.
The international research group aims to answer the following questions:
- How have historical, political and institutional contexts given rise to different regulatory models?
- What impact do sector-specific characteristics have on the models implemented?
- What impact has this had on performance?
Work organisation : A workshop was organised in June 2022 on these issues, in cooperation with the Florence School of Regulation and George Washington University.
Results : This workshop was the starting point for a collective publication by a major Anglo-American publisher, scheduled for publication in the first half of 2023. In addition to deepening the research focus on the theme of economic regulation models, which the Chair and the Club have already worked on extensively, in particular with the OECD, the aim is to provide a solid basis for contributing to ongoing discussions on European perspectives on regulation.
