Over the past decade and a half public-private partnerships (PPPs) have received widespread academic attention. Many scholars have studied the public-private provision of public infrastructures in terms of how it is governed and how it performs. This panel will view partnerships from a different angle, studying their role in regard to city building and thereby abandoning the traditional focus on long-term infrastructure contracts. The panelists discuss new avenues for research. These include the role of PPP units within the industry and the tensions inherent to that role; the opportunities of using the concept of collaborative advantage in PPP research; the emergence of new, meaningful forms of partnership which is reflected in the development of mixed-use buildings; and finally, the use of contractual analysis as a method to explain how practices and values in urban redevelopment partnerships evolve over time.
