Platform Member Lene Tolstrup Christensen Wins Research Prize
On April 1, PhD student at Department of Business and Politics and member of the PPP cluster of Public-private partnerships, procurement and outsourcing Lene Tolstrup Christensen won the prize for the best paper by a new researcher at the IRSPM 2015 conference.
The paper is called ‘On track or derailed: The role of state-owned enterprises in partly marketized public service provision’. The paper aims at exploring the development of the state-owned enterprises (SOEs) in this contrasting governance structure by providing a qualitative case study of passenger rail in Denmark and Sweden from the 1990’s and onwards focusing on the sectorial SOEs DSB SOV and SJ AB. The full paper can be found via this link.
IRSPM 2015 explored the potentialities of public management to respond, reflect, re-invent and revolutionise in the wake of 'crisis'. The conference was the 19th annual conference for the International Research Society for Public Management and it had approximately 500 participants. The conference took place at University of Birmingham form March 30 to April 1.

On behalf of the Public-Private Platform we congratulate Lene on this great achievement.
