Project Governance

Public-Private Partnerships for infrastructure developments generate significant governance challenges. On the one hand they have the potential to provide efficiencies and global best practices through market incentives that attract world-class participants; on the other hand there can be significant public opposition to private entities profiting from what are viewed as "public goods."

We are pursuing research on alternative approaches for stakeholder engagement, contractual arrangements, social and psychological mechanisms and collaboration technologies that can maximize the life cycle "value for money" of critical infrastructure projects while enhancing their environmental and social sustainability.
