    Round Table: “Corporate Power and Regulation in the European Union” (Sciences Po, France)

    Paris, France

    The influence of business on politics is a pervasive phenomenon in advanced industrial societies, but the mechanisms are notoriously difficult to study. How and when can we study how business power is exercized and to what effect? This roundtable brings together scholars in political science, sociology, and history, using a variety of methods and angles to analyze elite networks, campaign contributions, and public policy. They provide insights into the stakes of business politics, their engagement, and the impact of their activities.

    Seminar: “Governance via Intermediarie. A Comparative Study of Regulatory Intermediation in the Anti Money Laundering and Drug Control Regimes” (Sciences Po, France)

    Paris, France

    The study of regulation and regulatory governance is one of the most promising arenas for public policy research. Regulation is typically conceived as a two-party relationship between a rule-maker or regulator (R) and a rule-taker or target (T). This paper sets out an agenda for the study of regulation (and policy more broadly) as a three- (or more) party relationship – with regulatory intermediaries (I) at the center of the analysis. Intermediaries play major and varied roles in regulation, from providing expertise and feedback to facilitating implementation, monitoring the behavior of regulatory targets and building communities of assurance and trust. The author focus the analysis on two cases of intermediations:

    a) banks, lawyers and accountants in the money laundering regime and,

    b) wholesalers, distributors and physicians in the opioids epidemics. His aim is to discuss the politics beyond the design, interest aggregation and enforcement of the duty to report and to avoid harm in the two cases.

    He suggests that the framework of responsibilization process can be useful in understanding the process of making intermediators as rule-takers and that this process as relevance to the way we think on public policy and the power of the state in public policy processes.

    Seminar: “What is the future of exurbs in large metropolitan areas? A debate around Paris, London and New York” (Sciences Po, France)

    Paris, France

    Can suburbanization processes and “exurbs” in Paris, London and New York really be compared and why? What are the main economic, sociological as well as environmental issues they are facing today ? To what extent are these territories, as often described, the heart of today’s political discontent and populist votes (Trump, Brexit, “gilets jaunes”…)? To what extent are they jeopardized by metropolization processes being witnessed worldwide and specifically in such metropolitan areas? Robert E. Lang and Eric Charmes will confront their views on “exurbs” territories and populations in a comparative perspective applied to Paris, London and New York.
