About her

Juliet Sorensen: Chicago Council on Global Affairs

As a former Assistant United States Attorney and a Clinical Assistant Professor of Law at Northwestern University School of Law, Juliet Sorensen maintains active involvement in an array of public service initiatives. She participated as an Emerging Leader in the Chicago Council on Global Affairs, which authored the report No Free Money: Is the Privatization of Infrastructure in the Public Interest?

The Chicago Council on Global Affairs serves as a politically independent organization generating ideas, public education, and conversations about global issues. The Emerging Leaders Program launched in 2008 with the goal of activating young leaders in their field to identify and analyze how global issues may impact local policy.

In the No Free Money report, Juliet Sorensen and her colleagues in the Emerging Leaders Program tackled the highly controversial subject of privatization of public infrastructure. They utilized lessons learned from projects in Chicago, such as the Chicago Skyway Toll Bridge, and similar initiatives around the world, outlining the risks and rewards inherent with infrastructure privatization. Ultimately, the Emerging Leaders Programs explored privatization as an economic tool, concluding that the implementation of such programs would determine whether the outcome was successful, and that planners should evaluate each potentially privately funded project on its individual merits rather than as part of a blanket policy of either private or public funding. The group cited accountability to public interest and transparency as keys to successful accomplishment.
