Remunicipalization in the Netherlands: An empirical investigation

Research output: Working paperProfessional

Abstract

Analyzing shifts in the delivery mode of twelve municipal services between 2010 and 2018, in about 41% of the observations, shifts took place, with 54% toward outside production and 46% toward inside production. In the physical domain most shifts were to cooperation, whereas in the operational domain reverse privatization and also cooperation are dominant trends. Based on logit models, for services with high asset specificity, we find a lower likelihood to change, whereas for services with high measurement difficulty, we find a higher likelihood to change to outside and away from in-house, and a lower likelihood to change to inside.
