Former CIGJ visitor invents the ‘regulatory diamond’!

We were delighted to hear recently that Jonathan Kolieb, who visited the Centre in 2013 as a recipient of one of our Visiting PhD Scholarships has had an article published in the Monash University Law Review. The article develops thinking on responsive regulation that was stimulated by Jonathan’s visit to CIGJ/RegNet. It can be downloaded here: When to Punish, When to Persuade and When to Reward: Strengthening Responsive Regulation with the Regulatory Diamond.
