Abstract
This article analyses the (de)politicization dynamics in complex and technical matters like publicprivate partnerships, which is necessary given its social impact and budgetary consequences for the years and generations to come. The global financial crisis provides an excellent window of opportunity to present this argument, because PPP policy needs to reinvent itself. We argue that PPP policy needs to be (re)politicized at the broader societal and discursive levels, which means that their public nature is recognized and that policy alternatives are debated in the public forums. The Private Finance Initiative reassessment process in the UK may serve as an example.
