In this webinar, Prof. Judith van Erp will discuss the strategic use of negative publicity as an enforcement tool. Regulators disclose information about firms’ regulatory performance – either as ‘transparency’ or as more explicit naming and shaming. Professor van Erp will discuss the aims and nature of shaming strategies; as well as empirical research assessing effects on regulatory compliance; conditions and working mechanisms. She will also reflect on issues of proportionality, stigmatization, and backfiring.
