The title of the Workshop is: Regulatory Governance Under Stress in De-Liberalizing Times

Conveners: Dr. M. Kerem Coban (Kadir Has University & SOAS University of London), Prof. Yannis Papadopoulos (IEP & LAGAPE, University of Lausanne), and Prof Kutsal Yesilkagit (Institute of Public Administration, Leiden University).

The Workshop problematizes what the regulatory state has become and how it is responding to de-liberalization. In this regard, we aim to address the following (non-exhaustive list of) puzzles: (1) the extent of stress on regulatory governance due to de-liberalization trends; (2) the different forms of de-liberalization and their effect on institutional design and functioning of (networks of) regulatory authorities; (3) the impact on the institutions of regulatory capitalism (i.e., independent regulatory authorities); (4) the impact of de-liberalization regarding the doctrines of regulatory governance (i.e., credible commitment) such as through politicization of regulation with increased government intervention; (5) the potential changes in regulatory agencies’ policies under stress and their directions (e.g., accumulation, dismantling); (6) the trajectories of regulatory regimes (i.e., constellations of actors, policy ideas, and institutional arrangements), how regimes are responding to the stressors, and the transformations in regulatory regimes.

Please send your abstract (max. 300 words) to ""

Deadline: 29 May 2023 (we will notify the paper givers by 12 June 2023) We hope that many of you will find the Workshop of interest.
