Programme Description

Regulations – if not designed and implemented properly – can create administrative burdens, hinder growth, and stimulate corruption. At the same time, good regulation can foster socially inclusive innovation, increase preparedness to crises, protect the environment, and build resiliency. High-quality regulation is therefore key to a successful ecological and digital transition.

In its 3rd edition, this four-day executive training programme will provide participants with a comprehensive and practical know-how and skills-set on high quality regulation, considering both the dimension of analysis and the practical dimension, sharing experience on how to manage rules across their life cycle to achieve meaningful governance objectives. The programme integrates operational lessons from a wide cross-national and multi-level perspectives with sessions on different global regions.
