In a time of increasing privatisation of public services, can we ensure that profit doesn't outweigh the public good? Martha Minow sheds light on this complicated picture. She argues that the new arrangements aren't necessarily bad - market forces can be used to improve public services - but the partnership must be structured correctly. Certain public values must be preserved, including anti-discrimination and respect for individual autonomy and choice.
