Hide / Show Abstract

The organisation of the exercise of ownership rights (thereafter the "ownership function") within the state administration varies from one country to the other, and is very much dependant on the traditional administrative organisation, the significance of the state sector in the economy prior to the privatisation waves of the 1980’s and 1990’s, as well as from recent reforms carried out in regulation and the management of state-owned assets.
