Public-Private Partnerships (PPPs) are a growing policy option through which governments in Africa seek to bridge the gap between infrastructure, social service provisions, limited state resources, and competing socioeconomic planning needs. In Africa, however, the regulatory regimes around PPP are rudimentary at best and nonexistent in places. This paper examines the role that the legal profession could have in developing regulatory frameworks, but positions this contribution within the context of trust, business relations, and the very visceral concerns and anticipated outcomes that the interested parties to any PPP arrangement have. The paper is based on the Ghanaian situation and offers some policy pointers that may be of use elsewhere.
