Ways of Seeing, Ways of Knowing: Why We Need to Rethink How We Regulate

Lady Hale Moot Court Room, 8-10 Berkeley Square, Bristol

Inaugural Lecture by Professor Morag McDermont

Regulatory systems are encountered on a daily basis - in education, immigration, food safety, building standards, to name a few.

Regulation is a central role of states as they seek to promote human co-operation and protect citizens from the consequences of global markets and unfettered competition. But regulation is seen as remote and technocratic, becoming a key target of the anti-expert mobilisations witnessed in the discourse around Brexit and elsewhere.

In this inaugural lecture Morag McDermont discusses why regulatory systems need to develop new ways of seeing and knowing that can allow social justice to become central to regulatory decision-making.
