Call For Panelist/Commentator: Regulation across Borders (Conference on Policy History, June 2016)

We are looking for a third presenter and a commentator to round out our panel proposal for next year’s Conference on Policy History. The panel will focus on various aspects of regulatory diffusion across political borders. One paper looks at Cecil B. DeMille’s role as policy entrepreneur in the spread of Right-to-Work laws in the United States between 1944 and 1960, while the other addresses the diffusion of international standards for aircraft registration and operation into the United States in the years immediately following World War I. Papers on a multitude of subjects within the area of regulatory diffusion would work well with this panel.
Information on the conference and the CFP can be found at, and you can reach me at Proposals are due December 4, 2015.
