Has the study of public service motivation addressed the
issues that motivated the study?
American Review of Public Administration, 46(3), 2016(M
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
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 .
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),
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 :
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
context: a comparative study of stop and frisk between
New York city and Taipei city.
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
pressure. - Reproduced.

The politics and management of policing reforms in newly

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.
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.
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
