Full price $1,560 (inc GST) (registrations closing 16 June)




2 x 3.5-hour sessions over 2 days


18-19 June 2024


Learn what ‘risk-based’ practice entails in enforcement, regulation and compliance management with Harvard Kennedy School of Government Professor Malcolm Sparrow, a former senior British Police Officer.

Professor Sparrow will guide you through contemporary developments in risk-based regulation. You will become better equipped to design regulatory strategies informed by recent developments in the field. You will also be better able to match different classes of risk with different regulatory structures and strategies.

This workshop features a mix of lectures, practical examples and interactive discussion. You will examine emerging trends across the regulatory landscape and be able to clarify your agency’s needs and aspirations, and identify opportunities to refine structures, strategies and tactics.

What will you learn?

On completion of this course you will:

  • have a better understanding of the nature of “risk-based” operations in regulatory, law enforcement and other risk control settings
  • know how success should be defined and measured in a risk-control setting
  • be aware of the challenges of implementing a risk-based approach.

Who should attend?

Mid-to-senior-level managers in law enforcement, social regulation, security, intelligence and other risk-control roles in government. The Modern Regulator is designed for people who have not attended ANZSOG’s week-long Managing Regulation, Enforcement and Compliance (MREC) program, but who are keen to sample its themes.
