This book provides a theoretical basis for examining public-private partnerships (PPP) so as to give researchers a better understanding of PPP and to develop a more strategic approach to the subject.
It analyses the various characteristics and approaches of PPP, drawing on a number of international studies, particularly from Europe and the USA, and it provides a thorough review of the literature. It looks, in particular, at two main PPP procurement systems: concessions and joint ventures.
