Observers of this process have become increasingly critical about the fact that liberalization has not delivered on its promises, that regulation has failed as well, and that new challenges are emerging in the infrastructures, requiring novel approaches to regulation. The most prominent such challenges pertain to investments, public services and public service obligations, infrastructure systems’ coherence, and more generally responsiveness of infrastructure operators to public policy objectives.
These constitute as many challenges for regulation and regulatory bodies. This conference aims at exploring these challenges for regulation and regulators across the infrastructures and in an interdisciplinary manner, combining engineering, economics, law, and political science.
