Who owns culture and heritage? Observations on Hong Kong's experience
The public value of history, culture and heritage interacts in complex ways with the private ownership of so many of the facilities which give substance to these matters.

One implication is that so-called public-private partnerships often involve just government-private interactions, with government failing in any meaningful way to represent 'the public'.
