Regulation: National & International Regimes Specialisation

The Regulation: National and International Regimes specialisation is designed to provide students with an understanding of regulation and governance in complex political, economic, and social environments. This will cover the implicit and explicit principles, norms, laws, rules and decision-making procedures around which actors’ interests and ideologies converge in areas of national and international regulation. Students will have the opportunity to explore topical issues in regulation including international investment law, trade policy, intellectual property rights, health and health equity, and restorative justice. Through this specialisation students will explore core theories and methodologies that have influenced the study of regulation and global governance. The specialisation considers different approaches that may be used to shape events (regulation) and studies the different actors and institutions who are involved in making things happen (governance). Students will learn about foundational theories while developing the skills necessary for cross-disciplinary engagement in criminology, international relations, law, political science, public health, and sociology.This specialisation is suited to students interested in careers in policy-making and research within national governments, global institutions, and non-governmental organizations.
