Regulators without Borders? Labor Inspectors in Latin America and Beyond

View Full Event Description

Please join us for the Lecture & Luncheon, “Regulators without Borders? Labor Inspectors in Latin America and Beyond” by Andrew Shrank, Olive Watson Professor of Sociology and International and Public Affairs at Brown University.

RSVP Required. To reserve a spot or for more information, contact: cipr@tulane.edu

Sponsored by CIPR.

Description:
The substantial body of literature addresses the growth of transnational regulatory networks that purport to foster learning, legitimacy, and coordination among national regulatory agencies. But network membership is neither universal nor well understood. Are regulators more likely to go abroad when they are vulnerable to domestic political pressure, or when their independence and influence are intact?
