The benefits and risks of experimental co-production: the
case of urban redesign in Vienna.
Public Administration, 94(2), 2016(Jun): p.509-525.
Building on the literature on co-production and the
(pragmatist) literature on experimentalist policy-making
we introduce and evaluate a novel form of co-production:
experimental co-production. We propose a model of this
specific form including a list of not only potential
benefits but also possible risks and costs. We illustrate
and examine this model of experimental co-production by
drawing on the case study of a major urban planning
initiative in Vienna, Austria that included an
experimental co-testing phase. We find that while the
expected benefits of experimental co-production were
partly realized for the citizens involved, the city
government faced major political costs. – Reproduced.

Governing the smart city: a review of the literature on
smart urban governance.
International Review of Administrative Sciences, 82(2),
Academic attention to smart cities and their governance
is growing rapidly, but the fragmentation in approaches
makes for a confusing debate. This article brings some
structure to the debate by analyzing a corpus of 51
publications and mapping their variation. The analysis
shows that publications differ in their emphasis on (1)
smart technology, smart people or smart collaboration as
the defining features of smart cities, (2) a
transformative or incremental perspective on changes in
urban governance, (3) better outcomes or a more open
process as the legitimacy claim for smart city
governance. We argue for a comprehensive perspective:
smart city governance is about crafting new forms of
human collaboration through the use of ICTs to obtain
better outcomes and more open governance processes.
Research into smart city governance could benefit from
previous studies into success and failure factors for e-
government and build upon sophisticated theories of socio
technical change. This article highlights that smart city
governance is not a technological issue: we should study
smart city governance as a complex process of
institutional change and acknowledge the political nature
of appealing visions of socio-technical governance. -

Social Problems, 63(3), 2016(Aug): p.351-372.
Flouting 150 years of reports on their political
impotence, millions of informal workers have recently
begun mobilizing for labor rights. What provoked this
unexpected development? This article analyzes the
Colombian informal recycler movementùa ''least likely''
case for successful mobilization due to the recyclers'
extreme marginality and the Colombian state's violent
repression of labor movements. The article argues that
the rise of neoliberalism and the consolidation of
democracy created political opportunities that
conventional perspectives on the informal economy would
not lead us to expect. Three specific links connected
these macro-level transformations to increases in the
recyclers' collective organizing capacity. First,
technical, financial, and symbolic backing from non-
governmental organizations (NGOs) enabled recyclers to
develop innovative organizing models. Second, new human
rights provisions contained in the Constitution of 1991
created an opening to challenge state policy. Third, the
privatization of waste management spurred recyclers to
action by leaving them with two clear-cut possibilities:
waste corporations might permanently displace them, or
recyclers might collectively organize to protect and
improve their livelihoods. - Reproduced.

Stigma as social control: gender-based violence stigma,
life chances, and moral order in Kenya .
Social Problems, 63(3), 2016(Aug): p.447-462.
The stigma associated with gender-based violence (GBV)
exacerbates its physical and mental health impacts, as
well as the chances of experiencing additional violence.
We extend understanding of this stigma and its effects by
demonstrating how stigma operates as a mechanism of
social control at both interactional and structural
levels to preserve the moral order. We also further
general stigma theory by clarifying the conceptualization
of power that befits understanding stigma as a mechanism
of social control that has cognitive, interpersonal,
structural, and moral components. Analysis of data from 6
focus groups with women survivors of intimate partner
violence and 19 interviews with close others and key
informants in Kenya shows that the moral order, or what
matters most, is maintenance of the marital unit, to a
great degree because it is the institution that maintains
the economic survival of women and children. The cultural
belief that a woman experiencing spousal abuse has
violated normative gender and spousal expectations and is
therefore a threat to the moral order of the community
demands that both husbands and community members act to
protect the moral order. Protection of the moral order is
accomplished through discrimination against survivors
that is institutionalized through custom, law, and the
family. Thus stigma acts as a, albeit contested,
community process of social control that (re)produces
gendered power geographies. - Reproduced.

The output cost of gender discrimination: a model-based
Economic Journal, 126(590), 2016(Feb): p.109-134.
We use a growth model in which saving, fertility and
labour market participation are endogenous, to quantify
the cost that barriers to female labour force
participation impose in terms of an economy's output. The
model is calibrated to mimic the US economy's behaviour
in the long-run. We find that a 50% increase in the
gender wage gap leads to a 35% decrease in income per
capita in the steady state. Using independent estimates
of the female to male earnings ratio for a wide cross-
section of countries, we construct an economy with
parameters similar to those calibrated for the US
economy, except for the degree of gender barriers. For
several countries, a large fraction of the difference
between the country's output and the US output can be
ascribed to differences in gender discrimination. -

Empowerment of women through Panchayati Raj
Institutions(PRIs) in Odisha: a review of issues and
Indian Journal of Public Administration, 62(2), 2016(Apr-
The term 'empowerment' is essentially an enabling process
to make people capable of taking decisions concerning
their development and for changing their lives for
better. The Panchayati Raj Institutions (PRIs), through
73rd Constitutional Amendment, have been designed to
empower the people at three appropriate levels. The
Amendment provided institutional mechanism and was meant
to rekindle the flame of self-governance. The basic
objective of the democratic decentralisation through
reactivation of the Panchayati Raj system was to realise
Gandhiji's concept of 'Gram Swaraj' (Aslam, 2007:79). The
most important aspect of the widening democratic
decentralisation has been the reservation of seats, for
the women and Dalits. Studies show that by extending
reservation to women, PRIs have certainly led to the
increased participation of women in panchayats as voters,
candidates, as elected members of PRIs taking part in
decision making, planning, implementation, and
evaluation. However, certain constraints which stem from
traditional village institutions and familial and socio-
cultural forces still remain (Mathur, 2008:84). In this
context, the article attempts to study the emerging
patterns of women's leadership and empowerment aspects
among the Dalit and tribal groups in the state of Odisha
in eastern India. - Reproduced.
