Our society grants considerable powers to regulatory agencies: they can impose fines, seize property, limit business practices and suspend professional licenses. Their routine use of state authority and coercion distinguishes them from the rest of government and carries its own distinct strategic and managerial challenges, which are the focus of this master class. The target audience of this master class are those working at the strategic level in regulatory agencies.
During the course of this master class of half a year, the following topics are discussed: (1) models of regulation and compliance, (2) methods for regulation and compliance, (3) regulation versus self-regulation, (4) regulation and compliance, (5) regulation and the media and (6) European Union regulation. Practitioners use this information as input to work on reports in which they discuss a case from their own organization.
This Master Class is convened by professor Ferdinand Mertens and dr. Martijn van der Steen and managed by Ellen Wiemer MA.
