by Judy van der Graaf, Risk, and how it can be managed or regulated, has become a very prominent issue in contemporary society. The financial crisis and the responses to it serve as good illustrations of that. And at a very different level it is visible in our department with the establishment of the new MSc programme Economies, Risk and Society that, amongst various other topics, looks at questions of risk and regulation in economic life. In my PhD research I am especially interested in the challenges that globalization poses to the regulation of risks. In a globalized world with markets spanning multiple nation-states and even continents, risks can transfer quickly and easily. This poses an additional layer of complexity with regard to how risks can be controlled and who can play a role in their control. In my thesis I aim to add to a growing regulation and governance scholarship which argues that regulation should no longer be considered as the prerogative of the state and that we need to develop a greater understanding of sources of control beyond the state.
