Welcome to our new EVENTS site!

Here you will see a full round up of seminars, conferences, and other events organised by the Regulatory Policy Institute


upcoming Events

The The RPI regularly hosts events in London and Oxford with presentations given by distinguished speakers on a a range of regulatory and competition policy issues.

Our flagship events are two annual conferences, held in the spring and the autumn, and the Hertford Seminars in Regulation, held throughout the year. 

Hertford Seminars provide an opportunity for expert, lively, and informal discussion of major public policy issues, both during the seminar itself and, typically, over food and drink afterwards, for those who are able to stay on to continue the conversation.  Numbers are restricted to encourage interchanges under the Chatham House Rule. The mix of attendees typically reflects the diversity of RPI members and supporters in government, business, the professions, and academia. 

We are very grateful to FTI and Shepherd and Wedderburn for hosting our 2018-2019 seminar programme.

Our two annual conferences are the Westminster Conference, a one day conference of particular interest to policy makers, regulators and the regulated industries, held each spring, and our Competition and Regulation Policy Conference, held in Oxford over two days in September, and including the Zeeman Lecture and our Distinguished Fellows Dinner.

Additional, ad hoc events may be held depending on circumstances, interest, and demand.

Attendance at our conferences is open to all, while our seminar series is currently by invitation only with priority to RPI members.  If you would like to enquire about any of these events, or be added to our invitation list, please contact us using the form below.

Our Westminster Conference will bring these themes together to examine the central question of the new social licence to operate. The conference will include contributions from international experience as well as policy makers, regulated companies and advisors across the utility sector.
