PhD Student Virtual Colloquium on Regulatory Governance

10–11 December 2020


The Governance and Regulation Research Network (GARNET) at the Centre for Global Business, Monash Business School, is inviting current and recently completed PhD students to take part in a Virtual Colloquium on Regulatory Governance.

The colloquium will include both asynchronous and synchronous aspects. The asynchronous aspects will involve participants submitting a draft chapter or paper (maximum 8000 words) and a corresponding media or video presentation (maximum 15 minutes). Each participant will be matched with at least one senior academic from within GARNET and beyond who will provide individual feedback on the draft chapter/paper. We will also facilitate off-line participant engagement with the papers and videos.

The synchronous aspects will take place over 10-11 December 2020 in Australian Eastern Daylight Time (AEDT). We expect that this will involve a mix of career building information sessions and themed zoom discussions, including some key regulatory governance texts.

The themes of submitted papers may relate to (but are not necessarily limited to) the following:

      • Construction of regulatory standards

      • Public enforcement and effectiveness of public regulators

      • Private enforcement mechanisms and actors

      • Non-state actors, private and informal regulation

      • Regulatory impact and compliance

      • Multi-level regulatory governance systems

      • Digitisation, technology and regulation

      • Regulatory theory
