Public-Private Partnership and Concessions in Serbia – Manual is a primer for business written by author Slavica Joković, PhD. Aimed at both students and professionals working in industries which have public-private partnerships, this book focuses specifically on the law surrounding them in Serbia. Many topics are covered, including the specific definitions and principles as laid out by Serbian law, an explanation of the Public-Private Commission and the resolution of disputes and supervision. In addition to this, procedural elements are explained in full, including how procedures are initiated both with and without elements of concession, and the author offers an explanation of the contents of the public contract.

Public-Private Partnership and Concessions in Serbia – Manual is a well presented and well organized book from start to finish. Slavica Joković has arranged this book with clear chapter headings that separate elements out in a way that makes it easy to reference, especially if you are a student looking for a specific subject area to use in your work. I won’t pretend for a moment that I easily understand the complexities of this area of business and law, but the standard of English used to explain concepts was very concise and well constructed. I didn’t spot any obvious errors during my reading, and the piece speaks with a clear and neutral voice that makes it accessible for anyone wishing to learn more on the topic. Overall, Public-Private Partnership and Concessions in Serbia - Manual does exactly what it promises, and does it very well.
