The PPP conference took place from 20th to 22nd  November in Antwerp and was organized by our Research Group (Koen Verhoest, Murwantara Soecipto en Marlies Hueskes), together with Erasmus University Rotterdam and the University of Twente. The conference in Antwerp was the fifth in a series of international public-private partnership conferences. The first meeting was held in Copenhagen in 2012 (on the theme of “economic advantage”), the second in Vancouver in 2013 (on the theme of “political economic and business strategy”), the third was in Melbourne, Australia in 2014 (on the theme of “the challenge of governance”), the fourth in New York City 2015 (on the theme of “The Public Perception of PPPs”). These conferences have assembled key scholars and practitioners to examine public policies toward PPPs, to articulate the strengths and weaknesses of this delivery approach, to weigh the empirical evidence against the theoretical advantages of PPPs; and to assess the conditions under which PPPs are likely to be advantageous for government, for citizens and for businesses.
