Services outsourcing


Supporting justice administrations decision-making process through a comparative analysis of different models of the privatisation of complex public services, including justice and penal execution.

The wide discussion on the privatisation of public services has revolved mostly around arguments based on the ideological background of political decision-makers rather than the studies that may support them.

IPS supports you to develop a comprehensive assessment – as a basis for policymaking – comprising the various options for outsourcing of correctional services, as well as models of financing, management and monitoring in the face of these options.
