Few have been as deeply ingrained in the world of regulatory research, policy, and strategy as Cary Coglianese. The current director of the Penn Program on Regulation has specialized in regulation and regulatory approaches for years, with a focus on assessing alternative regulatory strategies and regulatory policy making. He is also the founder of The Regulatory Review, one of the web’s most comprehensive publications on regulatory news, analysis, and opinion, as well as erulemaking.org, a website dedicated to technological and institutional issues related to rulemaking.
Coglianese recently joined Ascend Radio host Paul Leavoy to discuss the biggest issues, challenges, and opportunities surrounding occupational regulation as well as the most remarkable and useful findings yielded by his decades of research and analysis of regulation. Part 1 of their conversation touches on:
- How regulators can regulate effectively in an environment of prevalent misinformation;
- How we can understand regulation as a verb instead of a noun;
- How public engagement and performance metrics can help regulators foster continuous learning and improvement;
- What we can learn from private sector best practices and the role of management-based regulation in achieving regulatory excellence; and
- The importance of achieving balance in occupational and professional regulation.
Stay tuned for Part 2 of Leavoy and Coglianese’s conversation, where they discuss regulation’s role in addressing climate change and managing new technologies like AI, how regulators can better communicate their successes in a media environment that focuses on negative headlines, and more.
