Transnational Institute new book on the future of public services
The Transnational Institute (TNI) publishes today "The Future is Public: Towards Democratic Ownership of Public Services" gathering (re)municipalisation successes examples across the world.
"The Future is Public: Towards Democratic Ownership of Public Services" new book identifies 1,400 (re)municipalisation successes examples across the world in diverse sectors like health, water, energy, or waste management. Célia Blauel, President of Eau de Paris and of Aqua Publica Europea and Milo Fiasconaro, Executive Director of Aqua Publica Europea are among the contributors.
In today's particular context, with most communities facing the COVID-19 emergency worldwide, and a social-economic crisis which looms, the TNI's new publication is more relevant than ever.
Célia Blauel and Milo Fiasconaro join several experts from the public services sector, civil society organisations, trade unions, and local authorities in presenting concrete cases of (re)municipalisation and 'republicisation' of essential services that succeeded in improving performances while ensuring universal access and democratic control. 'The Future is Public: Towards Democratic Ownership of Public Services' publication invites us to reflect about the world post-COVID19 and the central role that public services will have serving citizens interest across the world.
