This international casebook focuses on the increasingly important issue of public procurement. The result of a major international research study, it combines cases with editorial commentary and contextualizing chapters to maximise learning opportunities.

The sixteen detailed cases investigate public procurement on a regional, national and international level. Edited by a team of internationally recognised experts, they cover several countries and continents, illustrating strategies and innovations as well as common problems. Each case concludes with a number of questions to allow an in-depth understanding and to aid the book’s use as a teaching text and the eight link chapters take the case study evidence further to explore a number of themes.

In combining descriptions of public procurement cases with cross-case analysis, this book draws out key dimensions to enable further analysis and development
