This chapter begins with a brief discussion of how government attempts to participate in the market but at the same time regulates it, by using its purchasing power to advance conceptions of social justice, particularly equality and non-discrimination. The term ‘linkage’ is used to describe this procurement. The chapter then discusses examples of procurement linkages. An overview of subsequent chapters is presented.
