Exeter University is organising and hosting the 8th Biennial Regulatory Governance Conference sponsored by the ECPR Standing Group on Regulatory Governance. 



Due to the spread of the COVID-19 situation and actions taken in different states, the Steering Committee of the ECPR Standing Group on Regulatory Governance and the Centre for European Governance have decided to postpone the 8th Biennial Conference on Regulatory Governance at the University of Exeter until June 23 – 25, 2021. Our prime concern is public health and to mitigate any risk to participants and staff. 

If you have already paid, registration and accommodation fees will be automatically fully reimbursed. If you wish to attend the conference in 2021, your submission is still considered as ‘accepted’ and will remain on the online submissions page accessed here.

Please delete your submission if you do not wish to attend. Otherwise, the submission will be editable until the new conference deadline which is November 25, 2020. 

The 8th Biennial Regulatory Governance Conference sponsored the ECPR Standing Group on Regulatory Governance taking place at the University of Exeter from June 23 until June 25, 2021 covers a wide-range of topics around the over-arching theme of who carries the conversation today. The conference tackles the present context where some well-established ‘certainties’ around democracy, rule of law, governance, public policy, compliance and accountability are no longer taken for granted.
