2nd HEC Paris Workshop on Regulation: Regulating Lifestyle Risks in Europe - The Case of Alcohol, Tobacco, Unhealthy Diets & Gambling

  • On 20 and 21 September 2012, HEC Paris will host the second edition of a two-day workshop at ‘le Château’ with selected speakers and discussants to identify horizontal, common themes and determine whether the lessons learned in relation to each area of EU intervention may be transposed to the others.

    This workshop will offer an opportunity for researchers, policy makers and other stakeholders to reflect on the role which the European Union should play in promoting healthier lifestyles, in light of the moral, philosophical, legal and political challenges associated with the regulation of individual choices. Special attention will be paid to the role that the relevant industries may realistically be called to play in tackling the rising tide of NCDs.

    Alberto Alemanno, associate professor at the Law department at HEC Paris, holder of the Jean Monnet Chair in EU Law & Risk Regulation and editor of the European Journal of Risk Regulation and Amandine Garde, senior lecturer in Law and director of the Durham European Law Institute, Durham University, co-organisers of the event will open the workshop with a lecture entitled: ‘Setting the Scene: The Emergence of EU Lifestyle Regulation’.
