Topic: A study of Australian regulatory style and business practice

Presenter: Ms Shelley Marshall - Lecturer, Monash University

The study reported in paper occurred deep within one of the most concerted periods of global economic integration in history, associated with a major shift in ideas about the way that economies should be managed and thus regulated. As with other economies around the world, immense transformation occurred in the 1990s and early 2000s in the governance of the Australian economy by laws, sectoral norms and business systems. In the course of our research we witnessed companies undergoing great structural change in the organisation of capital and employees, as well as in the processes through which services and products were designed, manufactured and supplied. Our project examine the responses by Australian businesses to regulatory change, the heightened competition created by global economic integration, and the way that Australian businesses marketised relations that were previously governed by different norms and business systems.

All welcome, no RSVP required.
