Public interest in public-private partnerships
In this study, firstly public-private partnerships are tried to be defined and classified, and then they are compared with public procurement and privatization practices. Afterward, public-private partnerships are examined within the scope of public services, and the legal natures of public-private partnership agreements are determined. The uncertainty caused by the legal sub-structure which regulates the public-private partnership methods that are currently implemented has been determined, and the need for uniform regulation has been put forward. In the study, the issues that need to be considered both methodically and contractually in publicprivate partnerships have been discussed in order to ensure public interest, which is one of the basic concepts of administrative law.
