19 June – UKRN + Institute for Public Policy Research breakfast seminar: ‘Considering the notion of ownership in the consumer policy debate’

The narrative on what is fair to customers, and how ownership might play a part in making markets fairer, or less fair, has gained an increased profile and coverage in the national media; and there has been particular focus on essential services where the state has a role in at least setting the regulatory framework.  Clearly some policy proponents are also thinking that changing ownership could address distributional (un)fairness across customers of essential services. This small session, under Chatham House rules, will bring together representatives from the UK regulators and the UKRN Expert Panel for a roundtable discussion to consider these and other issues.
