King’s Public Policy and Regulation Workshop - 16 June 2022

Please note that this event has passed.

The workshop, hosted by the Department of Political Economy, is an annual event that was established to foster collaboration among public policy and regulation scholars at King’s College London, in the UK, and internationally.

This year, the workshop takes place on 16 June, from 10.00-18.00, in the Nash Lecture Theatre (K2.31) at King's, and will be followed by a reception. 

The aim of the event is to support cross-fertilisation between disciplines, such as public policy, political economy, and comparative politics. The workshop is also central in highlighting the Department of Political Economy’s profile in high quality research in public policy and regulation.

Dr Adam Chalmers, co-ordinator of King’s Public Policy and Regulation Research Group, said: “This year, we are proud to host the Ken Young Annual Keynote Lecture in Public Policy and I’m delighted to announce that Professor Helen Margetts, from the University of Oxford, will be giving this year’s keynote.”
