Uncertainty and the Dangers of Monocultures in Regulation, Analysis, and Practice

Art Alderson
The transnational harmonization of regulation creates vulnerability to unexpected challenges. Policymakers should be wary of monocultures in regulation, analysis, and practice, and instead seek to manage policy diversity. In his lecture on February 10, Richard Bronk will focus primarily on grounding its argument theoretically in relevant concepts from philosophy, biology, and the history of ideas; but it will also discuss empirical examples and consider implications for political theory and policymaking. Bronk is a Visiting Fellow at the European Institute of the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE).
