This Handbook systematically compares public–private partnerships (PPPs) from across the globe to examine factors that have contributed to their success or failure. The editors have brought together an international range of experts to produce richly detailed accounts of the various ways in which PPPs are conducted.

The Handbook on Public–Private Partnerships in International Infrastructure Development addresses the crucial question: what makes an infrastructure project more or less successful when it is delivered by a public-private partnership? Providing thorough empirical analysis and following a methodological structure which aids reader understanding, chapters are divided into useful geographical sections including: the Anglophone world, Europe, Asia, and the Middle East and North Africa. This Handbook arrives at an important juncture, given the major infrastructure projects that will be necessary to achieve the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals.

Authoritative and invaluable, the Handbook is vital for researchers focusing on infrastructure, strategy and project management. Practitioners will also benefit from the case studies featured in this book.
Critical Acclaim
‘Governments the world over are exploring and/or actively using public–private partnerships (PPP) to both support megaproject expansion while defraying some of their requisite costs. This edited book takes a unique and singularly useful approach to better understanding PPP initiatives, through developing case studies of successes and failures in multiple countries to find the set of common features that better enable their success. A truly exceptional and timely book with powerful lessons for scholars and public policy professionals alike.’
– Jeffrey K. Pinto, Penn State University, US

‘This book presents a powerful set of studies from different parts of the world, offering unique insights into when public–private partnerships work and when they don’t. The result is a fascinating and in-depth account of one of the most important, and contested, organizational innovations in modern times.’
– Jonas Söderlund, Linköping University, Sweden

‘This edited volume goes well beyond critically introducing public-private partnerships as an inter-organizational arrangement by presenting in-depth cases from many countries around the world; not only more, but also less successful ones. The volume is an important read as it provides a balanced, contextualized, and empirically substantiated perspective on this organizational form.’
– Jörg Sydow, Freie Universität Berlin, Germany

‘An excellent Handbook, written by leading experts. Written in a clear yet rigorous language, it is relevant for both academics and practitioners interested in PPP. Particularly meritorious is seeing several different countries analysed, including those that are less often featured in this kind of Handbook.’
– Giorgio Locatelli, Politecnico di Milano School of Management, Italy
