TitleStrategic public private partnerships : Innovation and development / David J. Maurasse
ImprintCheltenham : Edward Elgar, 2014
Descript xii, 193 pages ; 24 cm


This timely book addresses contemporary and future dynamics of collaboration, combining public, private, and nongovernmental resources at a time when global concerns ranging from economic insecurity to environmental threats to chronic diseases cannot be solved by single sectors. David Maurrasse reveals that government alone cannot adequately address the myriad challenges of our complex times. Therefore, while the idea of collaboration is increasingly popular, such efforts are difficult to implement. The author expertly analyses the strengths, weaknesses, and potential of cross sector partnerships, transcending the public/private paradigm by integrating the social sector into its framework. A number of diverse case studies from across the globe are presented alongside strategies, opportunities and future challenges for strengthening partnerships. This book captures current thinking and approaches to partnerships leveraging the public, private, and social sectors to address pressing contemporary issues and stimulate innovation. As such, it will prove an invaluable reference tool for not only academics, students and researchers in the fields of public sector economics, public policy and business and management, but also for practitioners and policymakers involved in the review of specific manifestations of cross sector partnerships
