The ESRC Centre for Analysis of Risk and Regulation (CARR) welcomes paper proposals and expressions of interest for its Fifth Annual Research Student Conference.

CARR is an interdisciplinary group of social scientists researching the organisational, political and legal aspects of risk regulation. We are organising this Conference for students whose research focuses on a topic related to CARR's agenda.

We welcome both expressions of interest in attending the conference and proposals for papers to be considered for presentation.

We encourage PhD students, especially those at an advanced stage in their research or writing, to present their work in progress, including conceptual issues regarding risk and regulation, empirical findings, methodological issues, or research strategies.

The conference is intended as a forum for intense and constructive discussion and debate between research students and is designed to help students improve their research projects.

In addition to students' presentations, the Conference will include keynote speeches and a series of 'Master Classes', led by members of CARR.


"A great chance to meet fellow researchers working with risk regulation issues in a variety of different fields."

"I really enjoyed this conference and will definitely be looking for opportunities to come back in the future!"
