Prof. Radaelli offered one of the four e-talks with international scholars provided by the first virtual summer of the International Public Policy Associaiton, the largest world-wide association of researchers working in the field of public policy.
The talk gathered an international audience of participants from Kenya, Singapore, Netherlands, Poland, Philippines, India, Germany and Malaysia engaged with a range of projects with different methods. The session presented the political science component of studying regulation as type of public policy well as the responsibility taken by social scientists when they engage with real-world policy-makers.
Prof. Radaelli told us a bit about his experience with this e-talk:
This was a unique opportunity to meet with such a diverse range of doctoral students interested in studying regulation as a type of public policy. We also debated why it matters to engage with regulation especially at times where the pandemic has led many governments to strike a balance between regulating life-styles and regulating to protect public health. The exchange with the students allowed us to explore the ways in which regulation can be governed and meet our accountability criteria.
