Private Actors and Self-Regulation - The amount allocated by HiiL for this research project is fixed at €400.000.
HiiL is pleased to announce the launching of a Call for Research Proposals in the context of the HiiL Research Theme Private Actors and Self-Regulation.
The Tender Document is developed around the core question:
Which form of regulation with a transnational dimension, created by either private actors, public actors (including inter-governmental organisations) or through their cooperation, is most successful in regulating the conduct of corporations in a transnational environment? And what conditions are decisive for determining the appropriateness of the relevant regulatory regime?
