Public/Private Partnerships + Privatization

Urban Planning

Fall 2012

Moshe Adler, instructor

Privatization and public/private partnerships raise questions both about the proper role and obligations of government, and about when public or private production is the better method for the government to use to fulfill these obligations. The course covered the main theories that planners rely on in order to choose between the different forms of service provision, and examined selected cases in light of these theories.
