Chapter 2: Public private partnership's juridical identity: the international dimension

Sara Valaguzza and Eduardo Parisi


The second chapter analyses the international dimension of public private partnership in order to acquire some fundamental elements for the systematic reconstruction of its juridical essence. In this context, public private partnership appears to be a political strategy for the achievement of sustainable development goals, based on the acknowledgement that only through alliances is it possible to create a better world for future generations. The institution of goal-oriented networks thus becomes essential in the achievement of globally sensitive social and environmental objectives. The role of multilateral development banks and of non-governmental entities as key players of said network is analysed in a perspective that highlights the global cultural and educational value of public private partnership. Lastly, it is argued that to produce value for the people, public private partnership should be treated in the international dimension as an efficient connector of parties involved in the achievement of public interests who temporarily pull resources together for the goal of reaching economic sustainable growth of a community, in the so-called ‘people first’ approach.
