Book launch: Critical reflections on Public-Private Partnerships
COVID 19 has emphasised the need to look carefully at Public Private Partnerships (PPPs) and the ways in which PPPs are being used as a response to many of the challenges resulting from the pandemic. What are the challenges for PPPs? Should we be concerned about the role being assigned to PPPs in the post-COVID landscape in terms of ‘building back better’ agendas? What does this mean for inequalities?
Join the authors and Philip Alston, John Norton Pomeroy Professor of Law at New York University School of Law and UN Special Rapporteur on extreme poverty and human rights, in a discussion of the ways in which PPPs have operated across different sectors and the implications of what we know from this history for assessing their use as a response to many of the challenges resulting from the pandemic.
