Public –Private contracts and third party beneficiaries

My research will examine what I call the Human Side of Public-Private Contracts.  I will undertake a comparative case study that examines this kind of contractual deregulation and its effects on vulnerable populations in the U. S. and Spain. I am particularly interested in how third party beneficiaries of these public-private contracts are involved in the contracting processes, whether they have any opportunity to raise questions about the contractual provisions or, in some circumstances, seek judicial review. I am primarily interested in U.S.-Spain comparisons, but I hope to gain insights regarding Europe generally.  What are the procedural protections for those who are thought to be the beneficiaries of changes in the public/private sector? What reforms have been instituted at National or European levels and what others might be appropriate in the future?
