Public-private partnerships in social service supply
Abstract (Rezumat în limba engleză): Public-privat partnership in social service delivery represents an instrument for stimulating the rise of the quality of life. In this article, I present the social context which determines the appearance of public-private partnership in social service delivery; I define the concept and describe the main characteristics and types of public-private partnership. Also, I present the conditions that must be accomplished by each partner and the benefits that public sector could obtain from public-private partnership.
