Creating Partnering Space

Authors: Van Tulder, R. & Pfisterer, S.
Publication date: 2013

In the policy discourse on sustainable development, the positive role of cross-sector partnerships is increasingly stressed. Governments habitually frame their partnership approach in terms of ‘PPPs’ - Public-Private Partnerships.

But it is not very clear whether these initiatives actually are a combination of ‘public’ and ‘private’, whether these initiatives actually represent a partnership and whether they provide solutions for what type of problems. This book chapter addresses these questions and explores the right fit for sustainable development partnerships.
