  • The Wickedness of Rittel and Webber’s Dilemmas
    • Authors: Udo Pesch, Pieter E. Vermaas
      Pages: 960 - 979
      Abstract: Administration & Society, Volume 52, Issue 6, Page 960-979, July 2020.
      Rittel and Webber connected their notion of “wicked problems” to three fundamental planning dilemmas. Many approaches within public administration theory have explicitly addressed wicked problems yet hardly paid attention to the dilemmas. We revisit the planning dilemmas to find out their potential relevance for current administration theory and practice. We argue that the dilemmas evolve out of the current institutional setup, meaning that wicked problems cannot be resolved by better administrative frameworks or methods. Rather societal matters are to be included in decision-making, for instance, by seeing societal opposition as opportunities to learn to deal with the planning dilemmas.

  • Perceptions of the Frontline Craft: Assessing Value Convergence Between
           Policy Makers, Managers, and Street-Level Professionals in the Prison
    • Authors: Hester L. Paanakker
      Abstract: Administration & Society, Ahead of Print.
      From the unique perspective of perceptions of the frontline craft, this study examines value convergence between policy makers, managers, and street-level professionals (N = 55). Toxic stereotyping between staff levels, exacerbated by restrictive organizational conditions, are shown to overshadow positive value convergence from socialization processes. In this Dutch prison study, public officials are consistently biased to believe that the management above them prioritizes targets (values that support the organization) over content (values that serve prison inmates). This explains how perceived role and value differences impact the actualization of shared values in public service delivery much more negatively than the actual differences.

  • Social Goals in the Theory of the Firm: A Systems Theory View
    • Authors: Vladislav Valentinov, Steffen Roth, Ingo Pies
      Abstract: Administration & Society, Ahead of Print.
      Drawing on Luhmannian social systems theory, this article revisits the single- versus multiple-objective debate on the theory of the firm. Firms are conceptualized as complexity reducing systems structurally coupled with potentially risky environments, and profit maximization is considered as a complexity reduction strategy for making sense of these environments. Whereas single-objective approaches reflect cases when environmental risks do not materialize into corporate sustainability problems, multiple-objective approaches address these problems by increasing the corporation’s environmental responsiveness beyond the profit maximization function. Our systems-theoretic framework therefore identifies the common ground between the two approaches and draws attention to the circumstances under which they can claim validity.

  • The Effects of Diverse Feedback Dynamics on Performance Improvement: A
           Typology of Performance Feedback Signals
    • Authors: Byung Hee Min, Youngmin Oh, Ralph S. Brower
      Abstract: Administration & Society, Ahead of Print.
      This article illustrates managerial responses to different performance feedback signals in decision-making processes for improving performance. First, we conceptualize and illuminate distinctive dimensions of feedback signals—internal feedback, external feedback, and comparative feedback signals. Then, we test how these different feedback signals improve performance of public-sector programs based on a 10-year panel data set from the Korean Performance Assessment Rating Tool (K-PART). We find that performance signals from sources internal to individual programs and from external reference points of problem identification (social performance comparison) affect program performance. This suggests an association between internal management and social comparison mechanisms relative to performance improvement. The novel contribution of this research lies in promoting scholarship on performance management by identifying three unique sources of performance feedback signaling.

  • Nonprofit-Government Relations in Authoritarian China: A Review and
           Synthesis of the Chinese Literature
    • Authors: Zhibin Zhang, Chao Guo
      Abstract: Administration & Society, Ahead of Print.
      This study provides a comprehensive review and synthesis of the Chinese literature on nonprofit-government relations. A total of 1,222 nonprofit research articles have been examined. It assesses the key insights and contributions of nonprofit-government relations studies across macro-, meso-, and micro-level. It identifies three important limitations of extant research: the lack of autonomy (i.e., it is state-guided), indigeneity (i.e., it is largely an exercise of applying Western theories), and sophistication (i.e., it has limited theoretical depth and methodological rigor). The middle-range approach to theory building is suggested as a most appropriate future direction to advance research in this area.

  • Racial Bias: A Buried Cornerstone of the Administrative State
    • Authors: Jennifer Alexander, Camilla Stivers
      Abstract: Administration & Society, Ahead of Print.
      Historians of American public administration have largely perpetuated its self-image of neutrality and scientific detachment. Yet public agencies are shaped by their political and cultural environments. Long-standing myths and historical narratives about the meaning of America reveal not neutrality but racial bias dating back centuries, a pattern sustained, in part, by failure to recognize its existence. This article explores how historical understandings of the administrative state have neglected the influence of racial bias on the development of administrative practices. We suggest that a reconstructed understanding may strengthen support for anti-racism efforts, such as diversity training, representative bureaucracy, and social equity.

  • Corporate-Led Environmental Governance: A Theoretical Model
    • Authors: Yuhao Ba
      Abstract: Administration & Society, Ahead of Print.
      The growing reliance on non-state environmental governance (EG) coupled with the current U.S. political environment portends an increasing salience of governing efforts from non-state actors. Among non-state actors, corporations play a substantial role given their market and societal power, their corresponding social responsibilities, and their organizational and institutional adaptability in developing and performing EG solutions. This article proposes a corporate-led environmental governance (CLEG) model. An important distinction between previous iterations of corporate social responsibility (CSR) and corporate governance and the CLEG model proposed here is the active assertion of corporate environmental leadership as state leadership is subject to retrenchment in the United States.

  • Vision, Voice, and Technology: Is There a Global “Open
           Government” Trend'
    • Authors: Sabina Schnell
      Abstract: Administration & Society, Ahead of Print.
      The article examines changes in the meaning and practice of government openness around the world and identifies three trends. First, the technological meaning of openness is increasingly supplanting rights-based interpretations. Second, although more countries are joining global openness initiatives, on average, governments are not becoming more transparent about their budgets or their data. Third, although more governments are using online tools to inform and consult citizens, space for civil society is shrinking. The article concludes that technological tools for openness are not by themselves sufficient for ensuring systemic government openness to genuine societal inputs.

  • Side-Effects of Representation: Measuring the Impact of Representative
           Hiring on Employment Discrimination Complaints
    • Authors: Ashley M. Alteri
      Abstract: Administration & Society, Ahead of Print.
      Since 1978, the government has been implementing programs to combat the underrepresentation of minorities in federal employment. However, representative bureaucracy literature has done little to examine the impact these initiatives are having on the workplace. This article examines the relationship between changes in representation and discrimination complaints. Increases in the ratio of minority and female employees predict an increase in the rates of race and sex-discrimination complaints, respectively. Increases in the ratio of Black/African American and Asian employees predict an increase in race-discrimination complaints. However, the ratio of employees ages 40 or above did not predict changes in age discrimination.

  • Behavioural Insights Teams (BITs) and Policy Change: An Exploration of
           Impact, Location, and Temporality of Policy Advice
    • Authors: Ishani Mukherjee, Sarah Giest
      Abstract: Administration & Society, Ahead of Print.
      Behavioural Insights Teams (BITs) have gained prominence in government as policy advisors and are increasingly linked to the way policy instruments are designed. Despite the rise of BITs as unique knowledge brokers mediating the use of behavioral insights for policymaking, they remain underexplored in the growing literature on policy advice and advisory systems. The article emphasizes that the visible impact that BITs have on the content of policy instruments, the level of political support they garner and their structural diversity in different political departments, all set them apart from typical policy brokers in policy advisory systems connecting the science–policy divide.

  • Public Administration and Macroeconomic Issues: Is This the Time for a
           Marriage Proposal'
    • Authors: Yanbing Han, Min Xiong, Howard A. Frank
      Abstract: Administration & Society, Ahead of Print.
      A number of Public Administration (PA) scholars have raised concerns regarding the discipline’s neglect of macroeconomic challenges. Our article focuses on the link between macroeconomic trends and PA. We submit that PA needs to address changing economic structure, shrinking workforce, growing financial leverage, and rising wealth inequity to maintain relevance. Study of these trends complements PA research on government revenue reform and economic development. Furthermore, we suggest PA rebalances its underlying assumptions regarding intellectual boundaries and view of human nature. Without a paradigm shift, PA may lose any legitimate claim to be an appropriate administrative science.

  • Horizontal, Vertical, and Hybrid: An Empirical Look at the Forms of
    • Authors: Christopher G. Reddick, Tansu Demir, Bruce Perlman
      Abstract: Administration & Society, Ahead of Print.
      The existing accountability research in public administration either provides conceptual analyses and definitions of forms of accountability or case studies on accountability. They focus on the structure of responsibility or responding behavior. This article is different in that it tests actors’ perceptions of the three commonly cited forms of accountability identified in the literature—vertical, horizontal, and hybrid. We test accountability on a national survey sample of city managers across the United States. Our structural equation model indicates that there is both vertical and horizontal accountability present in city governments in the United States supporting a hybrid model. The results of this study add to the literature because most of the existing research on accountability does not test this important relationship nor examine actors’ perceptions.

  • Does Participatory Budgeting Alter Public Spending' Evidence From New
           York City
    • Authors: Thad Calabrese, Dan Williams, Anubhav Gupta
      Abstract: Administration & Society, Ahead of Print.
      Participatory budgeting is described as a direct-democracy approach to resource allocation decision making. Theories assume it changes how public resources are spent by moving decisions from elected officials to citizens. The literature does not consider how earmarking—in which legislators direct parts of public budgets directly—might affect the impact of such policy devices. New York City’s participatory budgeting process which uses earmarks is analyzed to determine spending changes. Officials involved fund more projects at lower average amounts than those not involved but do not change the areas of funding, all of which is expected in systems of budgetary earmarks controlled by legislators.

  • Fostering Civil Society Through Community Empowerment: An Extended Case of
           the Sichuan Earthquake in China
    • Authors: Ming Hu, Jiangang Zhu
      Abstract: Administration & Society, Ahead of Print.
      How nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) enhance civil society development in China is underresearched while the extant literature centers on the government–NGO relationship. Applying the extended case method, this study explores how an NGO-facilitated community reconstruction program followed the community empowerment approach to foster local civil society in the wake of the 2008 Sichuan Earthquake. We argue that community reconstruction opened space for NGOs to nurture public spheres and residents’ civic engagement, foster community organizing, and support community participation in local governance. The dynamics reveals the functioning and limitations of the community empowerment approach for civil society development in contemporary China.

  • Burdensome Administration and Its Risks: Competing Logics in Policy
    • Authors: Gemma Carey, Helen Dickinson, Eleanor Malbon, Megan Weier, Gordon Duff
      Abstract: Administration & Society, Ahead of Print.
      Australia is currently undergoing significant social policy reform under the introduction of a personalized scheme for disability services: the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS). This article explores the growing administrative burdens placed on disability providers operating under the new scheme, using an Australia-wide survey of the disability sector. The 2018 National Disability Services survey of the disability sector reveals that administrative burden is the most commented on challenge for providers. Moreover, providers linked this burden to questions concerning their financial sustainability and ability to continue to offer services within the NDIS. In this article, we explore the sources of these administrative burdens and their relationships with the institutional logics at play in the NDIS. In addition to documenting the impact of system change on the Australian disability service sector, this article raises questions regarding institutional hybridity within personalization schemes more broadly and whether they are a source of tension, innovation, or both.

  • “Who’s Been Fooling Who'” Reflections on Truth and Deception in
           Politics and Their Implications for Public Administration
    • Authors: Michael W. Spicer
      Abstract: Administration & Society, Ahead of Print.
      This article examines the role of truth and deception in social and political life and its implications for public administration. Because deception is a necessary part of social and political life, the pursuit of absolute truths poses significant dangers to political practices. However, without some commitment to truth in social and political life, the resulting nihilism also endangers political practices. Public administrators, in seeking truth, therefore, should pursue a middle path between moral virtue and moral realism that preserves the practice of politics, a middle path such as is offered in the writings of the Founders of the Constitution.

  • Dealing With Questions of Responsiveness in a Low-Discretion Context:
           Offers of Assistance in Standardized Public Service Encounters

         This is an Open Access Article Open Access Article

    • Authors: Elin Thunman, Mats Ekström, Anders Bruhn
      Abstract: Administration & Society, Ahead of Print.
      A key theme in the research on bureaucratic encounters pertains to street-level bureaucrats’ opportunities for responsiveness when discretion is constrained by the introduction of standardized service delivery regulations, such as information communication technology (ICT). This article contributes to existing scholarship by exploring how low-discretion officials at the Swedish Social Insurance Agency Customer Center manage competing demands of making decisions that are built on regulations and simultaneously responding to the situation at hand and individuals’ needs. Analyzing real-time interactions using the conversation analytical concept of “offers of assistance” enables us to discover new aspects of interactional practices of responsiveness in standardized service encounters.

  • The “Trilemma” of Public Bodies: Bureaucratic Structures Versus
           Agencies Under Policy Conditionality
    • Authors: Manto Lampropoulou, Giorgio Oikonomou
      Abstract: Administration & Society, Ahead of Print.
      The aim of this article is to explore the implications of the delegation of powers from central bureaucracies to semi-autonomous agencies for public administration under policy conditionality. Focusing on Greece, we argue that agencification reforms that were introduced during the economic adjustment programs (2010–2018) have changed the role of the administrative apparatus in policy-making and implementation. Based on two exemplary case studies, tax administration and state assets management, the empirical findings illustrate the political dynamics that induced organizational transformation and show how policy conditionality has changed the domestic agencification pattern and has rebalanced the institutional, functional, and democratic dimensions of agencies.

  • Goal Ambiguity, Management, and Performance in U.S. Nursing Homes
    • Authors: Miyeon Song, Kenneth J. Meier, Anna Amirkhanyan
      Abstract: Administration & Society, Ahead of Print.
      Public administration research has produced a large literature on the determinants, consequences, and complexities of goal clarity and ambiguity. This article contributes to this line of work by examining how perceived goal ambiguity and goal multiplicity condition the effect of top administrators’ management on performance. In the context of U.S. nursing homes, we find that the positive effect of management on service quality tends to decrease when administrators report facing high levels of goal ambiguity and pursue numerous priorities that they consider important. This study improves our understanding of the complex mechanisms through which managerial strategies influence organizational outcomes.

  • Trust in Local Government: Service Satisfaction, Culture, and Demography
    • Authors: Tom Christensen, Kiyoshi Yamamoto, Saizo Aoyagi
      Abstract: Administration & Society, Ahead of Print.
      Trust in government is expected to promote effective implementation of public services. However, people in different cultures and on different levels do not always recognize the same concept of trust. Using a survey for Japanese and Norwegian citizens, the primary factors determining trust on the local level are examined. The analysis shows that the satisfaction with public service performance is highly influential in both countries, which is partly also true for political-cultural factors, while demographical factors are of minor influence. There are also variations in trust toward different institutions and actors, and the national factor is also significant.
