On the conference:

The proliferation of multilevel regulatory systems poses challenges to effective enforcement of policy goals and legal rules when a multiplicity of actors is involved.

The two-day colloquium aims to illuminate the diverse nature of these enforcement challenges in multilevel regulatory frameworks from different legal and academic disciplines. The speakers will address the varied understandings of what constitutes enforcement in multilevel regulatory systems and discuss different approaches that exist in assessing the challenges arising out of diverse enforcement contexts.

The first day will be devoted to a Young Researchers Colloquium in which PhD students forming part of the DTU research program and selected external researchers will present their work. For more details on the call for papers click here.

On the second day, some of the most renowned experts in the field will discuss and exchange their views on the topics discussed during the first day of the event. The day will be opened by a keynote speech by Professor Allan Rosas, Judge at the Court of Justice of the European Union.
