Event description

Description

This presentation will take disasters as a context for examining questions about risk regulation. It introduces the notion of a regulatory crisis and considers how risk events can also become ‘critical moments’ of disruption to regulatory authorities. These are moments that can test, redefine and re-form regulatory regimes. The presentation will draw on different examples to examine the very different circumstances that can lead to a regulatory crisis.

Bridget M. Hutter is Professor of Risk Regulation in the Department of Sociology at the London School of Economics and Political Science. She is former Director of the ESRC Centre for Analysis of Risk and Regulation and author of numerous publications on the subject of risk regulation. She has an international reputation for her work on compliance, regulatory enforcement and risk regulation. Her most recent book publications include Regulatory Crisis: Negotiating the Consequences of Risk, Disasters and Crises (with Sally Lloyd-Bostock, Cambridge University Press, 2017) and Risk, Resilience, Inequality and Environmental Law (Editor, Edward Elgar, 2017). She is regularly involved in policy making discussions, with international bodies, business organizations and regulatory agencies.
