This chapter focuses in particular on meanings given to how public– private partnership (PPP) might be judged as successful by implementing governments. It explores the notion of success—what constitutes success for PPP? The chapter examines the variety of forms and levels of PPP. It details the theoretically-based criteria for ‘success’, taking inspiration from some of the recent literature on ‘policy success’. The part explores what the GFC and the turbulent times that have followed it may mean for PPPs. PPPs are found at various levels of government, from regional partnerships between local governments and local private sector companies or associations, to national governments that team up with national companies or associations, to international organizations that team up with multinational companies or associations.
