During the COVID-19 crisis we have seen the devastating effect of privatization in sectors like long-term care, where the for-profit interests of companies has become more important than patient care.
We have also been reminded of the importance of the public sector and public services.
This crisis has exposed the damage done by years of budget cuts and moves towards deregulation and privatization.
Recently our Task Force on New Forms of Privatization released a report on the growing threat of privatization and we will bring together a panel of experts to discuss the key findings of the report, and their recommendations for strengthening public services in the future.
