Leading from Behind in Public-Private Partnerships?: An Assessment of European Engagement with the Private Sector in Development

Series: CSIS Reports
This report studies the usage of public-private partnerships (PPPs) in international development among six European nations-the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Germany, France, Ireland, and Norway. Although all face similar financial constraints and have similar histories as generous aid donors, the six countries' approaches to PPPs vary greatly. The authors examine which countries use PPPs most effectively in their development strategies and make recommendations about how other countries can improve their usage.
