Reimagining regulatory governance – Data

6 October @ 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm

This panel brings together experts who have studied disruptive technologies, internet governance and surveillance, with the aim of analysing the implications of these interconnected trends, particularly as they manifest against the backdrop of inequalities exacerbated by the pandemic. In reflecting on these patterns and relationships, the panellists identify critical governance challenges moving forward and changing regulatory dynamics.

Reimagining regulatory governance – Virus

13 October @ 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm

The pandemic response presents a critical juncture for health that could lead a prioritisation for people’s health and wellbeing through social change and reform, or a re-embedding of the status quo. This panel will explore these themes surrounding governance and regulation for health.

As private firms become increasingly central to the governance of democratic societies, they open themselves to political contention and new forms of regulation.

Data, Virus, Corporation: These are 21st century problems that find commonality in their enormous complexity. What sort of adaptive governance approaches might guide our attempts to intervene in different systems, including complex and chaotic ones?

Why G-REG matters

G-REG’s vision is to make the people working in the regulatory sector better skilled, according to common standards, and more broadly aware of what being part of a wider professional regulatory community means.

In early 2015 G-REG was set up by chief executives to improve regulatory practice, regulatory leadership, regulatory culture, and workforce capability in and across state sector organisations and regulatory systems.

One of G-REG’s unique key features is that it joins up local and central government together in a way that has simply never happened before.
