The typology of privatisation and marketisation provides a framework to explain and understand the different ways in which public services and the welfare state are being transformed. The different forms of privatisation and marketisation do not take place in isolation. They are part of a broader restructuring of the state in the interests of capital.
The paper sets out a four-part typology of privatisation and marketisation of public services providing a examples of each:
Marketisation of global public goods
Marketisation and privatisation of assets and services
Privatisation of governance and democracy
Privatisation of the public domain
