Colm P. O'Cinneide, Public Law Buying Social Justiceis authoritative, well-written, well-argued and a major contribution to the literature on regulation, equality and human rights. It focuses much needed attention on a key area of government activity, whose potential use as an instrument of social policy has been chronically disregarded in the United Kingdom since the Thatcherite reforms of the 1980s. It also makes a powerful case for the potential for procurement linkages to be used to
advance social justice, while also making the wider claim that economic tools such as procurement can be used as instruments of social change without risking the commodification of equality as a value...It will inevitably become a major point of reference in this field throughout Europe and North America: no
other text on this topic comes close to matching the range and authority of this book.

Prof. Oren Gross, University of Minnesota Law School (ASIL Awards Committee Report) ... highly original and immensely rich ... Drawing on international economic law, human rights doctrine, normative theory, and an astonishingly thorough analysis of relevant regional and domestic law, Professor McCrudden provides a rewarding treatment of the challenges associated with the transnational and comparative problems of regulating governmental contracting ... by undertaking such a comprehensive and analytically sophisticated study, Professor McCrudden is
helping to forge what will likely become a major new field at the intersection of international law, social policy, and governance ... [he] has taken a major theoretical step in helping us understand the challenges and opportunities that will arise as international law grapples with the public problems
posed by partially privatized nation states.
