The Utrecht Centre for Regulation and Enforcement in Europe (RENFORCE) focuses on the relationship between regulation and enforcement at the interplay of national, European and other levels of government as well as private spheres of regulatory enforcement. RENFORCE is also a platform for the exchange of ideas between academics and practitioners. 

To that end, RENFORCE is involved in a large number of activities, including research projects, publications and events, most of which are open to the public. To find out more, meet our interdisciplinary team of researchers or contact us

Building Blocks of RENFORCE

  • There's a need for EU regulatory and enforcement policies to meet societal objectives.

Collaboration with other disciplines

Furthermore, RENFORCE researchers are involved in strategic themes at Utrecht University, such as Institutions for Open Societies and Pathways to Sustainability. They also join forces with researchers from other disciplines in the focus areas Governing the Digital Society and Migration and Societal Change.
