Transparency is increasingly advocated at the international level whereas enforcement is a crucial stage of the regulatory policy cycle. This workshop brings together seven scholars with diverse national and disciplinary backgrounds to discuss empirical studies on transparency and enforcement.

The workshop will be held in Rome, on 24 June 2015 in Rome, at LUISS Guido Carli (address: viale Romania, 32).
