This timely Research Agenda examines the ways in which public-private partnerships (PPP’s) in infrastructure continue to excite policy makers, governments, research scholars and critics around the world. It analyses the PPP research journey to date and articulates the lessons learned as a result of the increasing interest in improving infrastructure governance. Expert international contributors explore how PPP ideas have spread, transferred and transformed, causing supporting markets to develop and mature.

Providing a multidisciplinary perspective on the topic, this thought-provoking Research Agenda proposes a range of future research directions, pointing towards the potential of fresh research approaches to PPP, the adoption of new theories and intellectual lenses, better balancing of public-private interests, and stronger public governance across what has now become a global phenomenon. It lights the way to diverse research frontiers ranging from financialisation to psychology and behavioural science, as well as the continuing prominence of public administration, politics, economics, planning and law.

A Research Agenda for Public-Private Partnerships and the Governance of Infrastructure will be an enticing read for students and scholars of regulation and governance, public management and administration and political economics as well as industry professionals across the domains of public policy, infrastructure and city planning.
Critical Acclaim
‘The world of PPPs and infrastructure governance is perilously complex, but this must-read book is the key to unlock the evolution of and momentum behind the global research agenda. Reading the individual contributions, I felt thrilled, impressed and humbled. Thrilled about the quality and diversity of research from long-established and newer authors. Impressed by the combination of fine eyes for detail and the identification of overarching themes, all explained in reader-friendly language. Humbled by the multitude of research challenges that remain.’
– Professor Emerita Pam Stapleton, The University of Manchester, UK

‘This edited volume makes a major contribution to the literature on public-private partnerships (P3s). Utilizing both cross-national and interdisciplinary approaches, the book assesses the current state of P3 research and suggests new avenues for future enquiry.’
– Lawrence Martin, University of Central Florida, US

‘This volume is an invaluable resource for scholars interested in public private partnerships in infrastructure. Drawing on a broad range of disciplinary perspectives, it explains what we have already learned about partnerships, and identifies the critical questions that remain to be answered. All of this is done in a crisp and accessible style.’
– Alasdair Roberts, University of Massachusetts, Amherst, US
