Dr. Levitt Interviews with Stanford Office of International Affairs

Monday, February 29, 2016

Showcasing how the Stanford Global Projects Center (GPC) has influenced large-scale, global projects by bringing together insights from diverse disciplines, Amy Lee of the Stanford Office of International Affairs recently published an interview with Professor Raymond E. Levitt, Director of the GPC. In the piece, Dr. Levitt highlights how the center’s current focus is on the daunting financing and governance challenges related to the use of Public-Private Partnerships (P3s) for delivering infrastructure.

"Basically, we aim to bring light, instead of heat, to enhancing the financing, governance and sustainability of global infrastructure, and our focus has been readjusted based on our evolving mission," Dr. Levitt said in summarizing how the center has positioned itself as the nexus of academia, government and industry on managing global infrastructure projects. The interview also covers how Public-Private Partnerships (P3s) work, the potential benefits of introducing a P3 concession delivery to a large-scale project, and the global collaborations GPC has conducted to collect data and cases of P3s.
