ManReg is a group of over 20 academics and PhD students, distinguished by our multi-disciplinarity, diverse expertise and commitment to policy engagement.
Lawyers, criminologists, socio-legal scholars and others work together on common regulatory problems across a wide range of sectors, including environmental regulation, corporate governance, media regulation, policing, intellectual property and biotechnology.
We have extensive links with regulators, policy-makers and practitioners in these sectors, ensuring that our research can make a real difference.
There is a proud tradition of scholarship on regulation in the School of Law going back to the 1980s. Established in 2011, The Manchester Centre for Regulation and Governance (ManReg) continues that tradition but seeks to take it in new directions.
