  • organisation and system crisis
  • innovation and sustainability

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.
