About the AOSIS published book: State-owned enterprises in Africa and the economics of public service delivery
This book is published by AOSIS Scholarly Books.
The book comprises 13 chapters with a focus on the performance of state-owned enterprises (SOEs) throughout Africa. It juxtaposes the economics of the SOEs, i.e., their contribution to the growth of domestic production, job creation, and sustainability of livelihoods vis-a-vis the rampant corruption, and inefficiencies that characterize their performance resulting in poor service delivery and bringing governments to the brink of failed states.
Policymakers, researchers, and postgraduate students in public administration, public policy, politics, economics, and management sciences, among others will find this book highly informative. Among other things, it provides insight into why SOEs are important social good institutions in any given economy, why their inefficiencies are the order of the day, and suggestions for reimagining their role.
Readers will attain a limited comparative perspective on the importance and performance of SOEs in various developing nations specifically African nations. These comparative perspectives are rare in political and public governance scholarship.
