The Governance Structure of Ports

  • Mary R. Brooks

The recent worldwide trend towards devolution in the port industry has spawned considerable variety in the types of governance structures now in place around the world. This paper discusses the range of devolution alternatives adopted in the global ports sector, as identified by the World Bank and academic researchers. It then examines the Canadian model more closely as it attempts to follow a more novel path, that of the not-for-profit organization.
