NYU Journal of International Law & Politics publishes PESD study results

By Erik Woodhouse

Erik Woodhouse publishes the final report from PESD's multi-year study on privately owned power plants in emerging markets. The study, appearing in the next issue of the New York University Journal of International Law & Politics, explains the wide variation in experiences as foreign investors have built and operated overseas power plants. The study explains why key contracts for these types of projects often fail and how to make private infrastructure investment more sustainable. More detailed findings from the study, including individual case studies in thirteen countries, are found at Experience with Independent Power Projects in Developing Countries.
