Public Law and Regulation

The Public Law and Regulation Unit is concerned with understanding the evolution and changes in public law, the body of rules and principles that regulate the State, its institutions and their relationships with individuals and public and private organisations. From a public administration perspective, these rules and principles constitute both a framework and a means of action; they are closely associated with various other regulatory instruments to shape individual and group behaviours. The Public Law and Regulation Unit’s mission is to undertake legal and empirical analysis to examine the current state of the law and its implementation in public administration. It examines different contemporary issues related to the digital State and the regulation of the digital society. It aims to contribute to producing and disseminating knowledge about these developments and the resources that can be deployed to accompany them. The Unit’s broader endeavours combine this fundamental and applied research with teaching and consultancy work.
