Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

Privatization is now a universal practice and is the result of a set of interrelated factors, all of which are explored in this two-volume collection. Following an introduction by the editors, the work concentrates on the public policy of privatization, and explores its dimensions by presenting key theoretical and empirical articles. The volumes are also interdisciplinary, bringing together articles informed by political science, economics and sociology.
