Boek publicatie, lezing en debat: Alternatives to privatisation

Public talk and book launch:

Alternatives to privatisation – public services for the future
Those who oppose the privatisation of public services are often confronted with the objection that they present ‘no alternative’. Yet, over the last decade, initiatives around the world to democratise public services and ensure equal access for all, have resulted in some interesting demonstrations of successful alternatives in practice. Two new books, co-published by TNI and the Municipal Services Project this month, show that there are a wide range of alternatives in the form of successful, non-commercialised public services in health, water, sanitation and electricity.

What works? What doesn’t? And how are communities resisting the neoliberal ideology which has failed to deliver on peoples’ basic human rights?

Sprekers zijn: David McDonald – Professor of Global Development Studies at Queen’s University, Canada, and co-director of the Municipal Services Project
Hilary Wainwright – Editor of Red Pepper magazine in the UK, TNI Fellow; author of Reclaim the State: Adventures in Popular Democracy, (2003)
