What is a Risk-Based Regulator, and would you like to be one?

Malcolm K. Sparrow is a leading international expert in regulatory and enforcement strategy, security and risk control. He is the Professor of the Practice of Public Management at the John F. Kennedy School of Government, Harvard University, and Faculty Chair of the Executive Program on Strategic Management of Regulatory and Enforcement Agencies.

"Citizens expect government to be vigilant in spotting threats, nimble in organising around them and skilful in tackling them - masters of the entire intervention toolkit", Professor Sparrow says. "This is a core challenge for managers in social regulation, compliance management, law enforcement and security roles."

This high-level forum will be interactive and will equip participants to design regulatory strategies, be informed by recent developments in the field and better able to match different classes of risk with different regulatory structures and strategies.

It is suitable for:

  • Regulators in law enforcement, social regulation, security, intelligence and other risk-control roles in the public sector
  • Mid and senior-level managers looking to clarify their own agency's needs and aspirations.

When: Wednesday 9 May in Hobart, 9am to 4.30pm
