The Regulatory Conversations, an initiative by the Integrity Organization started as part of the DFID funded SCRAP-C project, provides a platform to interrogate Nigeria’s philosophy of regulation and enables stakeholders including private sector actors to proffer solutions to observed gaps in the way and manner regulatory agencies have been interpreting their mandates.
How we intend to achieve this is by bringing relevant stakeholders both in the private and public sectors together to discuss these issues and proffer solutions, which form the basis for further advocacy with relevant organizations and institutions.
The Regulatory Conversations (RC) series began in September 2018 and till date holds quarterly. Six sessions of RCs have held addressing different important issues. Click the links below to find out more about each of the different RC sessions:
