Current Issue: EJRR 3/16: Special Issue on Regulating New and Emerging Technologies

The EJRR's latest release opens with an instructive and insightful reflection on the relationship between law and technology, proving that it is more complex than one-directional accounts are able to tell. The special issue includes one open access article by Aline Reichow on Risk, Uncertainty, and Learning in Nanomaterials Regulation: An Analytical Framework.
In addition, this issue features a set of original research articles devoted to the interplay between legal decision-making and expertise, standing rights for private parties, the European Securities and Markets Authority’s (ESMA) supervisory powers, and the civil standards of proof in English law.

EJRR - A Young Academic Journal at the Intersection of Law, Science and Policy

Today the most important and widespread form of EU regulation in the internal market is concerned with the government of risk to individuals’ health, safety and the environment. The European Journal of Risk Regulation provides an innovative forum for informed discussion on how these risks are regulated across policy domains in Europe and beyond. By focusing on both institutional and substantive aspects of national, European and Global risk regulation, it promotes a needed dialogue between risk assessors and risk managers involved, at both national and international level, in this contentious and continuously evolving area of law. While the central focus of the journal is the European Law and Policy regulating inter alia product (chemicals, food, pharma), financial, insurance and lifestyle risks (nutrition, alcohol, tobacco) as well as risks emerging from technology and third-party threats such as terrorism, discussion extends to other social sciences, such as regulation studies, risk analysis, safety science, political science, sociology, economics and applied behavioural sciences.

EJRR strikes a balance between the interests of the practitioners, notably those increasingly engaged in regulatory drafting and advice to the industry, and a more theoretical focus, combining normative articles with timely contributions on legislative and judicial developments.

Most importantly, EJRR brings together representatives from the legal world and other risk regulation stakeholders in one specialised journal, allowing them to lay down the foundations for a new discipline: European and Global Law of Risk Regulation.
