Call for Papers: SOG Workshop on the Future of the Regulatory State
CALL FOR PAPERS – SOG WORKSHOP
The Future of the Regulatory State: Adaptation, Transformation, Or Demise?
Oslo, 15/6 September 2011
One of the most widely made claims over the past three decades has been that we are living in the age of the regulatory state. However, events such as the financial crisis have pointed to potential weaknesses in the ‘orthodoxies’ that underpinned the ideas of the regulatory state. This workshop therefore intends to discuss the future of the regulatory state. We are interested in papers that explore themes, such as
– the limits of regulatory regimes
– the limits of market-based problem-solving
– the limits of national regulatory capacity
More details about the workshop can be found here: http://www.executivepolitics.org/Executive_Politics/workshop.html Please submit paper proposals (max 250 words) by 20 May to Nick.Sitter and Martin Lodge.
