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


Virtual conference

Given the considerable uncertainty linked to the pandemic regarding travel conditions (border closures and quarantines), we are moving the 2021 conference online.

The deadline for submissions will be extended to March 31st 2021. All accepted Panels and Papers for the postponed 2020 event will be carried over to the virtual Conference. We also provide paper givers the opportunity to update the titles and abstracts or withdraw by March 31st.

We are looking forward to an exciting conference in June and thank you for your commitment to the 8th Biennial Conference on Regulatory Governance.

The ECPR is pleased to confirm the 8th Biennial Regulatory Governance Conference is going ahead in 2021 organised by the University of Exeter’s Centre for European Governance. The Conference will take place virtually June 23 until June 25, 2021. The conference 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.
