OUR MISSION

The Regulatory Policy Program serves as a catalyst and clearinghouse for the study of regulation across Harvard University.  The program's objectives are to cross-pollinate research, spark new lines of inquiry, and increase the connection between theory and practice.  Through seminars and symposia, working papers, and new media, RPP explores themes that cut across regulation in its various domains:  market failures and the public policy case for government regulation; the efficacy and efficiency of various regulatory instruments; and the most effective ways to foster transparent and participatory regulatory processes.
