Congratulations to David Levi-Faur for receiving the Award for ‪Regulatory‬ Studies Development, by the European Consortium for Political Research Group on Regulatory Governance

David Levi-Faur (Hebrew University) is the first recipient of the Award for ‪Regulatory‬ Studies Development because of his successful efforts to create an academic regulatory governance community, as exemplified by his initiative to co-found the ECPR Standing Group on Regulation and Governance in 2005 and because of his high impact research. Together with John Braithwaite and Cary Coglianese he was the founding editor of the successful Wiley-Blackwell journal ‪‎Regulation‬ & Governance (papers from which have been featured also by our community). Professor Levi-Faur has held research and teaching positions at the University of Oxford, the Australian National University, the University of Manchester, the Freie Universit of Berlin and the University of Haifa, as well as visiting positions at the London School of Economics, the University of Amsterdam, the University of Utrecht and the University of California (Berkeley).
His numerous and much-cited publications include special issues of the Annals of the American Academy of Political and Social Sciences (The Global Diffusion of Regulatory Capitalism, co-edited with Jacint Jordana) and Governance (Varieties of Regulatory Capitalism) and editorships of the Oxford Handbook of Governance (OUP, 2012) and The Handbook of the Politics of Regulation (Edward Elgar, 2011). Together with Avishai Benish he is editing the working paper series Jerusalem Papers in Regulation & Governance. (See below in the comments links to these special issues and handbooks.)
The award will be granted during the Biennial Conference of the Standing Group, to be held in Barcelona 25-27 June 2014, where the laureate will address the conference audience with a speech.
