The Regulatory Institute seeks candidates to fulfil the role of Regulations Campaigner for a new project to effect regulatory change in the tobacco and/or alcohol sector so that healthy life years of citizens can be improved. We are a start-up non-profit organisation focussed on researching and promoting good law-making and regulatory techniques. This new projec is global in nature but with campaign actions in a country/ies to be selected depending on the language credentials of the successful candidate. The focus is to work with allies in effecting regulatory change.

Regulation we see today is of poor quality when compared against how good it could be if the best regulatory techniques of all jurisdictions and for all topics had been in the law-makersʼ toolbox. For reasons such as poor training, insufficient funding, limited human resources and simply having a big agenda, law-makers today do not have a well equipped toolbox. This is why the Regulatory Institute exists because we believe that regulation worldwide can be easily improved.

  • Ensure regular communications and updates on Regulatory Institute initiatives with the allies.
