Governance and Regulation Chair

The Governance and Regulation Chair is a research programme at the University Paris-Dauphine. It brings together regulated companies and regulatory authorities operating in different sectors – energy (electricity and gas), transport, communications and media, online gambling and healthcare –, as well as representatives from the main French public institutions. The Chair is composed of a robust network of academics, professionals, policy-makers and experts with a sound expertise in the fields of economics and management, law and politics.

Thanks to its cross-sectoral and multidisciplinary approach, the Governance and Regulation Chair aims at contributing to a better understanding of the dynamics, models and performances of regulation.

A network of regulatory experts and stakeholders

The Governance and Regulation Chair can rely on:

  • a robust multidisciplinary academic network,
  • renowned consulting firms giving a strong operational dimension to the Chair’s work,
  • regulatory authorities as members of an independent body (the Club of Regulators) working closely with the Chair,
  • regulated companies supporting the Chair as patrons,
  • representatives from the main French institutions involved in the analysis of public policies.

Other actors, and in particular the users, are involved in the Chair’s working groups and meetings.

Research, training and debate

The Governance and Regulation Chair:

  • carries out research projects on the organisation and assessment of economic governance with the aim of formulating proposals for adequate framework and tools,
  • provides training programmes conceived for young academics as well as professionals,
  • contributes to the public debate on governance and regulatory issues by disseminating knowledge to different audiences, and organising working groups and events involving the stakeholders.

The Club of Regulators

The Club of Regulators is an independent forum inside the Governance and Regulation Chair. The Club brings together regulatory authorities willing to exchange on institutional and organisational challenges which are common to different sectors, with the aim of proposing coherent actions and promote cooperation at both national and European levels. While remaining fully independent, the Club actively participates in the activities of the Governance and Regulation Chair and thus benefits from a multidisciplinary platform where regulation stakeholders and experts meet and engage in constructive debates and exchanges.

The members of the Club are: ACPR, AMF, ARAFER, ARCEP, ARJEL, ASI, CEPS, CRE, CSA, DGAC, Hadopi.
