About us

The Centre for Analysis of Risk and Regulation (CARR) is a major interdisciplinary research group based at LSE.   

CARR was an ESRC research centre for ten years until 2010. It will continue to operate as a hub for a wide range of different projects and activities. It is an interdisciplinary research unit operating within LSE’s Department of Accounting on behalf of a group of stakeholder departments.

    -    organisation and system crisis
    -    innovation and sustainability
    -    reputation and legitimacy

CARR's analytical emphasis in each of these areas is to understand and explain: variations in the organisation of risk management and regulation; pressures for change in policy and practice; and the consequences of regulation and risk management

CARR staff also work closely with, and advise, government policy-makers, regulators and business practitioners.

CARR is an international reference point and centre of excellence for the study of risk and regulation.
