What works in local government corporatization? Lessons from cross-country experience

Public Money & Management is planning a theme dedicated to cross-country governance lessons for local government corporatization. Building on an ongoing debate in our journal, this theme aims to extend the scholarship in a way that is helpful to both practitioners and academics, by expanding our knowledge about governance solutions for municipally owned corporations. The core question we will answer in this theme is ‘What can countries learn from each other about governance of municipally owned corporations?’

Any articles on this topic will be considered; articles that focus particularly on generalizability and practical usefulness of findings are preferred. In particular, the guest editors encourage:

  • Cross-country collaboration, to maximize cross-country learning. Including a practitioner as an author may also prove helpful.
  • Qualitative field research methods that require face-to-face interaction with practitioners, to maximize transferability of findings to the field. Single case studies are discouraged.

More broadly, we encourage studies that focus on directly implementable governance lessons that work beyond a single case or country.

Submission Instructions

There is room for five 8,000 word research articles in the issue and it will also include debate and new development articles. The final deadline for research article submissions is 1 September 2022. Debate and new development submissions need to be with the guest editors by 1 December 2022. When submitting an article, please follow Public Money & Management’s guidelines at http://www.tandfonline.com/rpmm. Articles will be evaluated based on the usual journal criteria and the aforementioned recommendations.

Enquiries about this theme can be made to the editorial team via Bart Voorn ([email protected]).
