This accessible book aims to inform readers interested in assessing privatisation and market development concepts on a global scale, and outlines a range of thinking on how these policy ideas have moved around the globe. Bringing together an international team of contributors, the book traces how privatisation concepts have grown in application, and how they have spread to become a central policy idea for governments. And whilst interest in the initial policy of selling-off state owned enterprises has peaked, the contracting and partnership modes of privatisation have risen to global prominence. This book also reflects on the importance of the privatisation family of ideas on both developed and developing countries. "Privatisation and Market Development" will be of great interest to those involved in public administration and public policy making from a global perspective.
