Description - Public-Private Policy Partnerships by Pauline Vaillancourt Rosenau

Partnerships between the public and private sectors to fulfil public functions are on the increase at every level of government. In the United States and Canada they currently operate in most policy areas, and in the US trial programmes are planned by the Internal Revenue Service, the Census Bureau and the Social Security Administration. Partnerships represent the second generation of efforts to bring competitive market discpline to bear on government operations. Unlike the first generation of privatizing efforts, partnering involves sharing both responsibility and financial risk. In the best situations, the strengths of each sector maximize the overall performance. In these cases, partnering institutionalizes collaborative arrangements in which the differences between the sectors become blurred. This is the first book to evaluate public-private partnerhsips in a broad range of policy areas. The chapters focus on education, health care and health policy, welfare, prisons, the criminal justice system, environmental policy, energy policy, technology research and development, and transportation. The contributors come from a number of fields, including political science, education, law, economics and public health. They merge experiential and social-scientific findings to examine how partnerships perform, to identify the conditions in which they work best, and to determine when they might be expected to fail.
