Open PhD & postdoc positions on alternative regulation and the role of trust

The GOVTRUST Centre of Excellence and the research groups Politics & Public Governance and Government & Law from the University of Antwerp are jointly looking to hire 5 new team members for a four year-project on design and effects of alternative regulation and the role of trust therein.

The successful applicants will conduct research within the project "Legitimate Alternative Regulation in Regulatory Regimes" (GOBAREG). The GOBAREG project is a large research project which takes the TiGRE-related research agenda one step further.

In particular, the GOBAREG project studies how alternative forms of policy and regulation in the environmental and welfare sector, aiming for more sustainability and quality, can be designed and implemented in a legitimate way. These alternative forms of policy and regulation seek to enhance innovation and reduce compliance costs, while protecting citizens from harm.
