The Distributional Effects of Transnational Regulation
Organised by Fabrizio Cafaggi (EUI), Katarina Pistor (CLS), Giovanni Tria (SSPA) and Giovanni Petrucci (SSPA).
Workshop at Columbia Law School
30th September 2011
Dividing the Transnational Regulatory Space
Towards an Agenda for Assessing the Distributional Effects of Different Modes of Regulation
The regulation of transnational social and economic relations is pervasive, yet there is remarkably little systematic literature on its distributional effects. In today’s world, regulation is no longer the prerogative of the state. The ‘rise of the regulatory state’ has given way to a ‘conquest of the regulatory space’, in which state, private, and non-governmental actors frequently compete to establish regulatory prerogative over critical policy issues in the domestic and/or transnational domain.
This conquest is aimed at dividing the regulatory space. Access to and the contestability of the regulatory space, and the allocation of the costs of regulatory failure will determine how much control different people have over the different regulatory space either directly, in association with others, or as members or citizens of different organizations or states.
The workshop will investigate existing frameworks for analyzing the transformation of transnational regulation and discuss how best to conceptualize the distributional effects of regulation. Discussions will be organized around the position paper co-authored by Fabrizio Cafaggi and Katharina Pistor and contributions from the workshop participants.
