At the Regulation Conference 2020, we welcomed numerous international experts from academia and industry to the Frankfurt School of Finance & Management. It is our ambition to make the Regulation Conference a regular institution. We very much hope that the debate on the "why" and the "how" of regulation, which will have state-theoretical and economic significance beyond individual segments, can be conducted more intensively than before.

Regulierungskonferenz 2019

The first Regulation Conference took place on 1 October 2019 at the Frankfurt School of Finance & Management. Experts from academia and business were invited to analyze and evaluate regulations at the national and global levels. In Germany, the term regulation is always immediately associated with a specific subject area. The conference is intended to provide a space for coordinating and reflecting on strategies for regulation.
