8 September @ 12:30 pm - 4:30 pm| $150
Presented by Jeroen van der Heijden, The Chair in Regulatory Practice
(Victoria Business School)
In regulatory governance and regulatory practice, ‘risk’ is probably one of the topics most talked about and least understood. This unit explores the foundations of risk as an approach to regulatory governance and practice, and the tools, processes and strategies of contemporary risk governance and risk-based regulation. The workshop explores the evolution of thinking about risk, risk governance and risk-based regulation, following the work of leading risk scholars Professors Terje Aven, Orwin Renn and Eugene Rosa. It discusses examples of risk governance and risk-based regulation and touches on the ethical and epistemic challenges that come with this approach to regulation.
