MPUP Seminar and Welcome Dinner 香港中文大學政治與行政學系



MPUP, MSSc Programme in Public Policy, has invited Professor Bridget Hutter, Professor of Risk Regulation from Department of Sociology, London School of Economics and Political Science, to visit CUHK in late-March. Prof. Hutter has an international reputation for her work on compliance, regulatory enforcement and business risk management.

Event details are as follows:

(A) Seminar: Regulatory Crises: Regulatory Encounters with Disaster, A Multi-disciplinary Approach
Date: 28 March 2017 (Tue)
Time: 4:30pm
Venue: LT5, 2/F, Cheng Yu Tung Building, CUHK
The 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 a regulatory crisis. It will also discuss how the research has been undertaken from multi-disciplinary perspectives.

Registration: on or before 21 Mar (Tue) (first-come-first-served)
