Global-Regulation Student Essay Competition 2013

Global-Regulation Student Essay Competition 2013

Global-Regulation is pleased to announce its Annual Students Essay Competition. This competition strives to stimulate original thought on issues in regulation. Participants are required to write an essay suggesting an original regulatory instrument or approach using lessons from regulatory case-studies.

Global-Regulation Student Essay Competition 2013

Global-Regulation provides an online case-study index and presents a paradigm shift in regulatory research through an advanced web-based information system. The case-study index provides an overview of case-studies in regulation and allows for easy comparison of lessons across industries, jurisdictions, and other significant fields.

At Global-Regulation our goal is to act as a bridge between research and practice, to encourage more-efficient, enforceable, and cost-effective regulations. Our vision is to benefit the public interest by creating better regulation for a better world.

Topic and Synopsis

Students should succinctly explain their vision to benefit the public interest in the context of a suggested new or improved regulatory instrument or approach in a field of their choice. The student should then describe in detail the specific regulatory instrument or approach that would be used and how it would be implemented according to his/her vision in the selected field.

The regulatory instrument or approach should be based on lessons from at least four case-studies. At least two case studies must be used from Global-Regulation database and at least two case-studies must be found from some other source. Students are encouraged to use lessons from different fields, industries, or jurisdictions.




The award consists of a monetary prize of $1,000 for the best essay. All submissions complying with the eligibility criteria will be published in Global-Regulation website.
