Coercive Policy Diffusion in a Developing Country: The Case of Public-Private Partnerships in Sri Lanka

Coercive Policy Diffusion in a Developing Country: The Case of Public-Private Partnerships in Sri... Abstract Over the last two decades, public-private partnership policy has been adopted in developing countries to a lesser degree than in industrialised countries. This paper argues that this policy has been diffused to developing countries like Sri Lanka with coercion from international aid-granting organisations through conditionalities attached to financial assistance. It details the country-specific challenges faced by Sri Lanka in responding to conditionalities as it has sought to implement this policy. Drawing on policy diffusion theory the paper develops a framework to be used in analysing the issues under investigation. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of Contemporary Asia Taylor & Francis

Abstract

Abstract Over the last two decades, public-private partnership policy has been adopted in developing countries to a lesser degree than in industrialised countries. This paper argues that this policy has been diffused to developing countries like Sri Lanka with coercion from international aid-granting organisations through conditionalities attached to financial assistance. It details the country-specific challenges faced by Sri Lanka in responding to conditionalities as it has sought to implement this policy. Drawing on policy diffusion theory the paper develops a framework to be used in analysing the issues under investigation.
