Critics of privatization are often told they present no alternatives. This book takes up that challenge, proposing conceptual models for what constitutes an alternative to privatization and analyses what makes them successful or not backed up by empirical data on creative public service initiatives in over 40 countries in the Global South. This groundbreaking study provides a robust platform for comparisons across regions and sectors, with a focus on health water and electricity. Alternatives to Privatization is a compelling study and has been written by leading academics practitioners and activists in the field.
