Setting the scene with a thorough introduction to water resource issues, Water Privatisation critically examines the new role played by Trans-National Corporations in managing and distributing water worldwide.
Written from an organisational and institutional perspective, the authors propose new structures of water management at local, national and international scales allowing for the implementation of simple, cohesive and effective policies.
Clear, focused, extensively referenced and drawing from cutting edge research in public administration this book is an essential tool for enabling the water and waste water services professional, be they producer, operator or regulator to communicate within a clear regulatory framework.

'Finger and Allouche offer fruitful insights into the social, economics and ecological issues at stake with the privatisation of water infrastructure and sustainable water management. It is certainly one of the first books in social sciences to discuss the ways to regulate public utilities at a global level...' - Environmental Politics
