The series explores regulatory practices, as they are experienced by citizens, regulators and regulated organizations in the context of the wider political, economic and social projects in which regulation is embedded. The seminars start from the idea that both regulation scholarship and regulatory practice are informed by a regulatory imagination. Thus, the purpose of the seminar series is to explore the following questions: • What political and economic ideas as well as disciplinary orientations inform regulatory imagination? • Who participates in the development of regulatory imagination? What is the role of citizens, public administrators, regulated organizations and experts in developing it? • What, if any, is the critical potential of regulatory imagination? How does it relate to social change?
