Public-Private Partnerships: Policy Evolution and Islamic Values
The research attempts to explain the dynamic process in a government organisation in implementing a policy to invite private participation in financing public infrastructure provision, i.e. Public-Private Partnerships. It explores how the policy is innovated, diffused, challenged and persisted inside the organisation and how it is influenced by external forces. The research will employ some frameworks in theories of organisation and institution, particularly on how policies are developed within an organisation. The roles of actors and networks among them will be simultaneously explored. Values involved in the development of policy will be viewed from Islamic Perspectives, providing there are interrelated issues such as role of governments, accountability, transparency, fairness, and redistributive justice. Explorative study on Indonesian case will be the main part of the research, while some financial analysis will also be used in discussing the transactions and structures of the infrastructure projects.
