State-Owned Enterprises and Innovation in Public Services in a Post-Pandemic World

The Routledge Handbook of State-Owned Enterprises (SOEs) was published in June 2020, in a world affected by a pandemic that is still with us. Governments had to plan emergency programs on a scale never seen since World War II or the Great Depression.

To reflect and discuss Innovation in public services and the role of Stated Owned Enterprises (and similar public organizations), an event is co-organised by the University of Milan and Ciriec. The workshop is intended for a discussion among authors of the Handbook and selected guests, in order to share ideas for a post-pandemic global scenario for SOEs.

Looking at the Handbook is there anything that you would update in a specific chapter after the current crisis? Are there lessons to be learned about the role of SOEs? What key messages are to be addressed to public authorities about the importance and role of SOEs? More in general, what should be the next advancements needed in your research area related to the future of SOEs?
