Session: Sustainable Gaming Environment and Effective Regulation Through Social License and Risk Communication Strategies

Public attitudes and expectations around gaming can be complex and constantly changing.  This can expose gaming regulators to sudden shifts in the expectations placed upon them by policy makers, communities and activists.  Where regulation is seen to fall short of community expectations, regulators may find themselves targeted as being part of a problem, rather than central to the solution of balancing the competing demands of the community to both enjoy and be protected from gaming. 

Futureye is a leading global specialist in identifying social, environmental, reputational and political conflicts.  Futureye works with its clients to resolve these conflicts in ways that produce collaboration and social agreement, by applying its social licence methodology to identify key audiences, their expectations, and the types of outrage that form the basis for community concerns. The presentation will demonstrate this methodology through case studies from the gaming sector.

Speaker: Steven Münchenberg, Director, Futureye
