Melbourne School of Government Disruptive Ideas Seminar

The Melbourne School of Government's Disruptive Ideas seminar series invites you to think outside the box when it comes to regulation and governance. Join Penny Gleeson on the 23rd of June to discuss the regulation of controversial medial products.

Regulation, Legitimacy and Values - The Regulation of Controversial Medical Products

What is political legitimacy? How is it relevant to regulators? What is the role played by values in establishing political legitimacy? In this seminar Penny Gleeson will address these questions, drawing on her research on the regulation of pharmaceuticals and medical devices in Australia. Penny will examine how regulatory regimes can address challenges to their political legitimacy, the pivotal role of values and the need for regulators to build and sustain their relationships with the regulated public.
