Securing public values in infrastructures

In the upcoming web lecture Wijnand Veeneman looks at the process of fragmentation of securing public values in infrastructure sectors during the operationalization (from governance level  to regulation) 

His key points are:

  • Securing public values is done using various types of institutions.
  • Public values in the public debate are often feel-good concepts, with a great deal of current debate on separate values and the attention they need to get.governance_level
  • Public values go through a transformation process from those feel-good concepts to explicit measures of performance.
  • In operation, many of these measures of performance condition the operation and might conflict.
