Transnational Regulatory Governance Research Group

The Transnational Law Institute's Transnational Regulatory Governance research group (TLI-TRG) is a platform for researchers and practitioners to examine legal innovations to address major cross-border challenges. including in the domains of the environment, energy, human security, technology and commerce. The shaping impetus for the research group’s work is the question of how hybrid forms of regulation are developing to address global challenges. The group is convened by TLI research fellow Stephen Minas.

The group has a particular focus on the roles of transnational networks and regional cooperation in meeting shared challenges. Meetings of the group have examined issues including energy trade governance, climate change, transnational science-based safety standards, social and biological design-based regulation and legitimation problems in global governance.

The group welcomes participants from both King's and other institutions.
