Learning from Grenfell: avoiding the next ‘black swan’ tragedy (University of Cambridge, Bennett Institute)
Uploading a blog recently published by the Bennett Institute for Public Policy. Co-authored with Martin Stanley.
Martin Stanley is the editor of Understanding Regulation – a website written for legislators, journalists, academics and others who wish to understand the recent rapid growth of the regulatory state, and how regulation should best be designed and enforced. Martin was previously a senior civil servant, and Chief Executive of (what is now) the Better Regulation Executive, the Postal Services Commission and the Competition Commission.
Martin follows Grenfell closely. We met soon after the fire and he has become an invaluable resource, mentor and friend. Helping me to understand how regulation and government function and how we might get better at learning.
