Essays in Regulation (new series)

Research reports

The RPI operates a strict 'public domain test' before embarking upon projects; the authors must be able to make the results of any study available to the public, or, if not, the study must be for a body with a public service remit (such as a government department, regulatory agency, inter-governmental organisation, charity, etc.). Dissemination of research results may be via books, journals, discussion papers, and reports.

Project reports are published in this section, and the project will ultimately involve full publication of all public domain RPI reports.

Letters and Notes

Letters and notes are short pieces of work devoted to specific or relatively narrow points concerning regulatory policies. Submissions for consideration should be made to George Yarrow

Essays in Regulation (Original series)

These are general papers on a variety of aspects of regulation and regulatory policy published between 19xx and 20xx.

Miscellaneous publications

Occasional one-off papers, published by the RPI, that do not fit into any particular series.

Beesley Lectures

In the years 2009-2010 the RPI organised the Beesley Lectures, currently held in partnership with the Institute of Economic Affairs and the Centre for Competiton and Regulatory Policy, and founded by Professor Michael Beesley, one of the most influential regulatory economists of his time.

This collection is of slides, papers and speeches from that period and Members of the RPI contributions to other series, where available.
