CAYMAN ISLANDS LAW SCHOOL LLM Course Leader Laura Panades has published a book chapter on public-private partnerships as a vehicle to improve social standards.

The European Parliament, in collaboration with reputed think tanks, has published this book as a collection of ideas for future legislation.

The book includes contributions from selected academics and practitioners from across the EU. It presents a fresh, practical approach in suggesting new legislative pathways.

Laura Panades’ research focuses on how to promote improved social standards via public-private partnerships.

Public-private partnerships are projects where the public and the private sector jointly provide public goods, works or services in the long term, and cooperate at several stages of the project.

Such social standards include the promotion of better work-life balance, equality among sexes and training opportunities in the workplace.

Prior to publication, the research findings were presented at a conference held in Brussels.

Such findings were also presented locally at two research seminars hosted by the Truman Bodden Law School and the Attorney General’s Chambers.

The results of those events fed into the final outcome of the book.

A copy of the book has been donated to the Law School library and can be accessed upon request. The full book is also available online, and can be downloaded at: http://bit.ly/2ra0Qf6

Mitchell Davies, Law School Director, said:

“This publication is an example of the high calibre research being produced by the Law School team, who continue to contribute to local and international jurisprudence.

“This work will feed into the new LLM in ‘International Finance: Law and Regulation’ at the Truman Bodden Law School, which includes a course on the law of public-private partnerships.”

Laura Panades, LLM course leader and author of the research, said:

“This research shows how public-private partnerships can promote social standards from a practical standpoint.

“Findings seek to inform future policy and law-making, both in Europe and in the Cayman Islands, and feed into the current discussion at the national level on public procurement.

“The recent public procurement overhaul in Cayman makes this an ideal moment to evaluate further ways on enhancing the social impact of public-private partnerships.”
