This chapter aims both to reflect upon the emergence of Public Private Partnerships (PPP), and the PPP literature, and to offer a means by which the significance of PPPs can be assessed. On the other hand, case studies across different countries and different sectors reveal considerable heterogeneity in the origins, incidence, and outcomes associated with PPPs. How PPPs, and other forms of provisioning, are indicative of neoliberalisation is addressed in the following section by reference to the systems of provision approach. Once again, in almost every analytical direction in which we turn, we find controversy, not least as social reproduction has become a focus of enhanced attention, especially in examining oppression by gender, race, and other social characteristics. And a step has been to emphasise the variegated nature of neoliberalism so that there can be no analytical templates as such for fitting our understanding of PPPs.
