Has the study of public service motivation addressed the

issues that motivated the study?

American Review of Public Administration, 46(3), 2016(M

ay): p.267-291.

The study of Public Service Motivation (PSM) has achieved

considerable academic momentum with increasingly subtle

research appearing each year. It is now opportune to look

back at decades of work to see whether the concerns that

initiated this area of study have been addressed. This

article uses seminal articles that have shaped the field

to find three main topics of interest: a concern about

the way that theories of public choice characterized

human nature, an ambition to crystallize and measure long

held understandings about a public service ethos, and a

wish to promote a practical basis for incentivizing staff

in the public sector. The application of PSM to these

goals is examined, with the conclusion that PSM studies

have made little progress in addressing any of those

concerns. The implications of that conclusion are briefly

considered. - Reproduced.

Public service motivation: a systematic literature review

and outlook.

Public Administration Review, 76(3), 2016(May-Jun):


Over the past two decades, research on public service

motivation has seen rapid growth. Despite the relatively

large number of publications to date, no systematic

research overview has been created, leaving the body of

literature somewhat unstructured and possibly hampering

future research. This article fills this void by

providing a systematic literature review of 323

publications that examines six key aspects of the

literature on public service motivation: the growth of

research on the concept, the most prominent studies based

on a referencing network analysis, the most frequent

publication outlets, research designs and methods, lines

of inquiry and patterns of empirical findings, and

implications for practice drawn from the publications in

the study sample. Strengths and weaknesses of the

existing literature are identified, and future research

directions are proposed. - Reproduced.

Going green in public organizations: linking

organizational commitment and public service motives to

public employees' workplace eco-initiatives .

American Review of Public Administration, 46(3), 2016(M

ay): p.337-355.

Public servants are expected to be good stewards of

resources, including the energy and environmental

resources consumed in a public organization's day-to-day

operations. Many government organizations have enacted

policies to mitigate the environmental impact of their

operations. Even in the absence of formal policies,

however, individual public employees might engage in a

number of discretionary, pro-environmental behaviors

known as eco-initiatives. What motivational factors cause

a public employee to exhibit eco-initiative? To answer

this question, we draw on a theoretical framework based

on connectedness to nature, organizational commitment,

public service motivation (PSM), and organizational

citizenship behavior (OCB). We use employee-level data

from a large city in the southeast United States to

examine employee participation in individual eco-

initiatives. We contextualize these discretionary

initiatives as interesting forms of OCB, which are

directed toward the environment (OCB-E). Our findings

suggest that connectedness to nature, organizational

commitment, and PSM are significant predictors of eco-

initiative in the public workplace. In addition, we find

that PSM conditions the impact of organizational

commitment on eco-initiatives for certain types of

employees. We conclude with a discussion that underscores

the importance of individual employee motivation in

discretionary efforts that advance OCB-E and effective

public stewardship generally. - Reproduced.

Beneficiary participation in non-governmental development

organisations: a case study in Vietnam.

Journal of Development Studies, 52(10), 2016(Oct):


Beneficiary participation in development projects has

been an important topic of debate during the last

decades. In the empirical research on the matter

beneficiaries themselves are seldom, if ever, asked about

their perceptions of participatory mechanisms in place.

We present such a (case) study on the Vietnamese local

office of a European non-governmental development

organisation, also probing into other stakeholders

perceptions (46 interviews in total). Our observations

allow us to refine some aspects of the extant theoretical

insights on beneficiary participation and representation,

as well as to formulate some recommendations for

organisations aiming at increasing beneficiary

participation in their decision-making. - Reproduced.

Humanitarian NGOs as instruments, partners, advocates and

critics in the governance of international humanitarian

response: complementary or conflicting roles?

Asia Pacific Journal of Public Administration, 38(1),

2016(Mar): p.43-59.

Non-governmental organisations (NGOs) play an important

role in the governance of international humanitarian

response as implementing partners to governments and

international organisations, as advocates, and as

critics. They face challenges in reconciling their role

as implementing partner with their responsibility to

promote principles of international humanitarianism, such

as humanity, impartiality, neutrality and independence.

But this tension can be managed to ensure effective

assistance to those in need. Governments and

international organisations should welcome the role of

NGOs in the governance of humanitarian response, given

the expertise and resources that NGOs provide. To improve

integration of effort and overall effectiveness,

governments and NGOs should work to establish greater

communication and enhanced procedures for coordination,

especially given the increased engagement by non-

traditional donor governments in the provision of

humanitarian aid. - Reproduced.

Welfare, inequality and financial effects of a multi-

pillar pension reform: the case of Peru :

Journal of Development Studies, 52(10), 2016(Oct):


This paper studies the potential effects of a multi-

pillar pension system on pension inequality, actuarial

liability and welfare in Peru, by means of simulations of

future distributions of pensions with social security

administrative records. The results show that actual

pension inequality and actuarial liability can be

substantially reduced with welfare preserving policies.

The simulations illustrate that when welfare is

considered, it is important to define the implied value

judgments, which are not universally agreed upon.

Therefore, this paper highlights the trade-offs of a

pension policy reform and contributes to assess the

second generation of pension reforms in Latin America. -

Performance feedback, government goal-setting and

aspiration level adaptation: evidence from Chinese


Public Administration, 94(2), 2016(Jun): p.452-471.

Organizational goals shape performance feedback and have

salient influences on strategic behaviours and outcomes.

I develop a model of goal-setting by combining

performance gap and bureaucratic control theories. I

predict that governments set goal levels historically in

line with their past goal levels and attainment

discrepancies, horizontally targeting the comparable

peers' goal levels and performance gaps, and vertically

aligning with the upper-tier authorities' mandates. Using

the data on annual economic growth of 31 Chinese

provinces from 2000 to 2012, the within-between random-

effects model substantially supports these hypotheses. -

Grounding police accountability and performance in

Public Administration and Development, 36(2), 2016(May):


The linkage between accountability and performance is not

always positive. This study proposes that contextual

factors affect the accountability-performance link. The

central question we explore in this research is how

citizens' trust and police culture influence the link

between police accountability and performance. We

conducted in-depth interviews and compared the stop and

frisk practices in both New York City in the United

States and Taipei City in Taiwan, which are located in

different contexts. The article concludes that both

citizens' high level of trust and an open police culture

improve the performance return of accountability

The politics and management of policing reforms in newly

industrialized, industrializing and developmental states:

introduction to the special issue.

Public Administration and Development, 36(2), 2016(May):


This Special Issue of Public Administration Development

on The Politics and Management of Policing Reforms in

Newly Industrialized, Industrializing and Developmental

States was undertaken in co-operation and with the

support of the Central Police University in Taiwan by the

Guest Editorial team of Paul Collins, Otwin Marenin and

Michael Chin-Chih Chu. In this Introduction, we first of

all deal with the context in which policing reforms may

arise the different types of policing, how reforms arise

from multiple domestic and international sources and the

differences in the level and degree of reforms. Next, we

outline the Special Issue (SI) approach and focus, which

is to build on what is already known and the lessons of

past efforts seeking to establish and sustain more

professional and democratic policing. The essence of the

conceptual approach is that reforming policing systems is

fundamentally a political process. We need to focus on

specific policies, practices and behaviour and shifting

the balance of policing toward more professional

behaviour. A key element that follows from this balancing

is then the possibilities of reforms taking hold in the

long run and becoming sustained. Within this framework,

the essays then summarized cover a wide variety of topics

and geographical areas - Africa, Asia, Europe and

Americas - countries on the way toward economic and

political modernisation with a variety of backgrounds in

authoritarianism. A number of emerging patterns and cross

cutting issues emerge. The final section addresses needs

for future research. The unaddressed or partially

addressed aspects across all the essays suggest several

matter, including the character of policing systems,

police decision making at managerial and individual

levels, how to assess police work and civilianization of

police work, informal policing systems and the impact of

security policies on policing - militarization and

secrecy. - Reproduced.

Measured governance? policing and performance management

in South Africa.

Public Administration and Development, 36(2), 2016(May):


The nineties were a period of mass reforms in South

African policing. Within a few years of its transition

from apartheid to democracy, the South African Police

Service (SAPS) had developed a performance measurement

tool based on the New York CompStat system. Such tools

have been praised for their apparent effectiveness in

reducing crime but scorned for the pressures they place

on police officers. This article demonstrates that the

SAPS' Performance Chart has framed the police as crime

fighters, giving little to no regard for community

relations or police legitimacy. While organisational

rhetoric emphasises police-community relations and police

professionalism, these are absent from the targets by

which police are assessed. The unintended consequences

were clearly demonstrated when angry residents of

Khayelitsha in Cape Town successfully lobbied for a

Commission of Inquiry into the failures of policing in

2012. The scandal showed that despite good intentions,

the introduction of the Chart has not produced effective,

democratic policing. On the contrary, the resulting

pressure to 'perform' can and has promoted police

practices that erode community trust in and cooperation

with police. For the SAPS, this is particularly true in

the absence of a measure of public confidence or of

feelings of safety. - Reproduced.

Varieties of participatory security: assessing community

participation in policing in Latin America.

Public Administration and Development, 36(2), 2016(May):


The language of community and societal participation in

the context of crime prevention has become ubiquitous

throughout Latin America, as governments increasingly

turn to police-community partnerships as a means of

addressing the seemingly intractable problems of rising

crime and insecurity. But to what extent has such

participatory security had any influence on the capacity

of the state to provide security? I argue that in order

to understand whether and how these participatory

instruments shape what police actually do, we must look

to variation in institutional design and how community

participation operates in practice. I develop a typology

of participatory security that considers how different

institutional features may differentially affect police

and other state agencies by alternatively serving as

channels for the flow of information and oversight

mechanisms or simply as a tool for improving the police's

image. Drawing on evidence from participatory security

institutions in Argentina, Brazil, and Colombia, I
