C-BERC Panel Discussion: Regulating business compliance: What works, what doesn’t, and why?
Panel Discussion titled “Regulating business compliance: What works, what doesn’t, and why?" on November 17th, 2015, sponsored by the Center for the Study of Business Ethics, Regulation, and Crime (C-BERC) at the University of Maryland College Park. C-BERC is an interdisciplinary center, supported by the Robert H. Smith School of Business and the College of Behavioral and Social Sciences.
The panel discussion addresses the contentious question of how to best prevent and control corporate misconduct. The topic is controversial with different strategies and approaches generating considerable debate. One of the most commonly utilized mechanisms, government regulation, ranks among the most contentious. In this panel, we bring together academics and representatives from the regulatory community, including Professor John Braithwaite (Australian National University, RegNet), Professor Adam Finkel (University of Pennsylvania, Senior Fellow and Executive Director, Penn Program on Regulation), Mr. Bill Fishlinger (CEO, Gramercy Risk Holdings, LLC.) and Mr. Dan Berkowitz (Partner, WilmerHale), to discuss the strengths and weaknesses of the regulatory enforcement process based on empirical research and the real-life experiences of those involved in the process. The panel discussion will be moderated by Professor Sally S. Simpson (Criminology and Criminal Justice, Director of C-BERC).
