Around 2010, the capitals of Germany and France were involved in processes of remunicipalisation of their water services. They are subject of two working papers published by CIRIEC (Paris and Berlin). At the initiative of TNI (TransNational Institute), a seminar was held on 19th September 2017 in Brussels, where the authors of the two studies presented a comparative analysis of the two processes on the basis of a table inserted in this Working paper.
