Regulation and Governance course (Australian National University, College of Asia and the Pacific)

The course is designed to help students understand the nature of regulation and governance in complex social environments. It examines the work of leading regulatory scholars and considers how their theoretical insights could be applied in practical settings. Case studies are drawn from a broad range of regulatory arenas, including public health, commerce, crime, environmental and climate change, human rights and development. The course also considers the challenges of regulation and governance in a globalising world. Students receive the opportunity to examine and synthesise relevant issues of regulation and governance through a short presentation of a case study. They actively engage with concepts and applied debates through in class activities and a final essay.
