On 14 October 2020 Dr. Barbara Warwas delivered her inaugural speech entitled “Returning to the Origins of Multilevel Regulation”.

The starting point of Barbara’s research and inaugural speech is that the ways in which society and professional practice are regulated today are excessively complex, too formal, and disconnected from people. During her speech, Barbara presented her own vision on how to reconnect the rules and the people by returning to forgotten and ignored alternative dispute resolution practices.
