    The central questions of privacy regulation—is self-regulation preferable to government regulation? are flexible standards better than specific limits? how can regulation keep pace with technology?—are not unique to the privacy area. They arise with respect to many other fields of regulation as well. A body of theory—governance theory—analyzes such questions at a more general level. This program will feature privacy law scholars who have applied governance theory to issues of privacy regulation in order to arrive at original and significant insights. In addition to presenting their research, the panelists will discuss how other academics who write about regulation can employ governance theory to deepen and expand their own work.
