Předběžná náplň práce v anglickém jazyce
Water and its ownership has been publicly discussed topic nowadays. Especially the European Commission's (EC) proposal for a Directive on the award of concession contracts raised the interest in water ownership structures and affordability of water supply for households. Many countries go down the road of privatization and big companies such as Veolia or SUEZ are gaining significant share on the market. It is questionable whether privatization does not lead to lower quality of water and much higher tariffs. People even launched European Citizens' Initiative in order to ban the EC's proposal and keep water in public ownership.
Water supply also differs from state to state in Europe so I would like to take a look at the structure in each of the countries and find out where the most effective structure takes place.
Is it more effective to have water supply in the private or public ownership? How does the ownership influence the efficiency of water provision and water tariff? And is privatization the right solution for improvement of the supply?
These are the crucial questions I would like to answer in the thesis. I would also like to summarize the water industry and the types of ownership that there exist. By these structures I would like to identify how effective each of them are and what could be improved. In the best scenario I would like to find out what is the most effective ownership structure in provision of water supply.
The sections should include description of the water market, reasons for privatization, effectiveness of individual ownership structures with some case studies for each of the countries in the EU where available. The core of the work should be an econometric model where panel data or cross-sectional data will be used in order to examine the changes in a tariffs explained by privatisations or municipalisations.
