  • Phenomenology in Public Administration: Bridging the Theory–Practice
           Gap
    • Authors: María Verónica Elías
      Pages: 1516 - 1537
      Abstract: Administration & Society, Volume 52, Issue 10, Page 1516-1537, November 2020.
      Phenomenology is the study of things as they “appear” (phenomena) to us in their own terms, prior to formal conceptualization. This article traces the development of phenomenology in public administration within the larger realm of interpretive approaches. It describes applied phenomenology as developed by Ralph Hummel and discusses its usefulness in the study of public organizations and administrative practice. As a way of studying process, phenomenology allows administrators to bridge the theory–practice gap. Since understanding a situation depends on different kinds of knowledge, phenomenological epistemology fosters a more democratic public administration.

  • The Closer, the Better' Comparing Advisory Councils at Different
           Government Levels
    • Authors: Quim Brugué, Joan Font, Jorge Ruiz
      Abstract: Administration & Society, Ahead of Print.
      Advisory councils exist at diverse government levels, making them especially appropriate to address the discussion about scaling up participatory institutions, by comparing their differences across different government levels. We analyze the characteristics of advisory councils in Spain, where they are quite similar at the national, regional, and local levels, allowing a controlled comparison of their functioning and results. Results show similarities across territorial levels and also signs of a better performance of the local and regional ones, especially regarding the satisfaction of participants. Relational goods and different understandings of what policy influence means are crucial explanations of these patterns.

  • Walking on Thin Ice: How and Why Frontline Officers Cope With
           Managerialism, Accountability, and Risk in Probation Services
    • Authors: Mathias Sabbe, Nathalie Schiffino, Stéphane Moyson
      Abstract: Administration & Society, Ahead of Print.
      Probation officers (POs) operate in a high-risk environment. They are vulnerable to mediatic and political backlash and are confronted with managerial innovations that can conflict with their values. A thematic analysis of 29 interviews with Belgian POs reveals that classical coping mechanisms caused by time shortages, such as rationing and prioritization, are amplified by managerialism. POs also break rules which present limited meaningfulness and routinize offender control to alleviate pressure from accountabilities to both managers and the general public. The study demonstrates that managerialism and accountabilities to the managers, the public, and the politicians model coping mechanisms in high-risk environments.

  • Strategic Orientation and Relationship Building Among Dyads in Complex
           Public Management Networks: Perspectives From State Asthma Coalitions
    • Authors: Stephanie L. Smith, Kun Huang, Shuyang Peng
      Abstract: Administration & Society, Ahead of Print.
      We explore strategic orientation as an approach to analyzing complexity in public management networks, asking how theoretically informed insights on relationship building fare when examined in the context of sector-, function- and policy arena–oriented dyads that form constituent elements of networks. Our survey of state asthma coalitions provides support for six facilitating factors regardless of strategic pairing, with surprisingly widespread support for differing ideas about how to address problems as a facilitative factor. The study also reveals several differences between dyads by strategic orientation, suggesting the approach offers a promising pathway to advancing analysis of complexity in networks.

  • Disentangling the Myth of Nonprofit–Government Relations in China
    • Authors: Zhibin Zhang, Chao Guo
      Abstract: Administration & Society, Ahead of Print.
      The evolving nonprofit–government relations in China have attracted increasing attention from scholars over the past four decades. The complexity and fluidity of the relations, however, pose substantial challenges to analysis. Recently, to disentangle the myth of the important relationships, research has been progressing primarily in three directions toward greater methodological diversity, stronger focus on the behaviors of nonprofit organizations vis-à-vis the governments, and more research synthesis. This symposium brings together three studies that represent these trends. After providing a brief historical overview of the study on nonprofit–government relations in China, individual contributions to this symposium are characterized.

  • Deliberation and Policy-Making: Three Ways to Think About
           Minipublics’ Consequences
    • Authors: Vincent Jacquet, Ramon van der Does
      Abstract: Administration & Society, Ahead of Print.
      Policy-makers are increasingly experimenting with various ways to involve citizens in policy-making. Deliberative forums composed of lay citizens (minipublics) count among the most popular of such innovations. Despite their popularity, it is often unclear in what ways such minipublics could affect policy-making. This article addresses this issue of conceptual ambiguity by drawing on an original systematic review of the literature. It shows that the literature has approached these consequences in three ways: congruence with decisions, consideration in the policy-making process, and structural change. The article discusses the implications for empirical research and points out trajectories for future research on deliberative minipublics.

  • From Neighbors to Partners: The Adoption of Interlocal Government
           Collaboration in the United States, 1977–2007
    • Authors: Meghan E. Rubado
      Abstract: Administration & Society, Ahead of Print.
      Local governments in the United States frequently collaborate with neighboring localities for service provision despite the high costs of this strategy. Using the Institutional Collective Action (ICA) framework, this article argues that a key explanation of interlocal collaboration lies in the way local leaders learn from the behavior of neighboring jurisdictions that collaborate, which alters the transaction costs of their own potential collaborations. Using a data set of financial transfers for 35,000 jurisdictions over a 30-year span, the article shows that localities are more likely to collaborate when a larger share of their neighbors collaborated in the past.

  • Does Co-Production Lead to the Creation of Public Value' Balancing the
           Dimensions of Public Value Creation in Urban Mobility Planning
    • Authors: Sylke Jaspers, Trui Steen
      Abstract: Administration & Society, Ahead of Print.
      Co-production is intended to co-create public value. This article analyzes how co-producers address the tensions that arise among the various dimensions of public value. The article builds on the theory of coping strategies to examine individuals’ coping behaviors. Two urban mobility planning cases are studied in depth. This study finds that co-producers experience various tensions between public value dimensions. Furthermore, co-producers cope with the tensions both according to balancing strategies and trade-off strategies, preferring one value dimension over the other. In addition, the empirical evidence provides examples of circumstances, such as communication, in which a balancing exercise is enhanced.

  • Developing the Public Participation Field: The Role of Independent Bodies
           for Public Participation
    • Authors: Laurence Bherer, Mario Gauthier, Louis Simard
      Abstract: Administration & Society, Ahead of Print.
      This article examines how independent bodies for public participation (IBPPs) can initiate a convergence around practices among actors in the public participation field, especially sponsors of participatory arrangements and the associated participation firms. As IBPPs have the public resources and legal authority to independently organize participatory arrangements, they can play a coordinating role in the public participation field. A comparison of two IBPPs, one in Canada (Quebec) and one in France, shows that IBPPs enhance the development of the participation industry and strengthen recognition of several informal norms concerning public participation design and implementation.

  • Personal or Party Roots of Civil Service Patronage' Ministerial Change
           Effects on the Appointments of Top Civil Servants
    • Authors: Katarina Staronova, Marek Rybář
      Abstract: Administration & Society, Ahead of Print.
      Patronage is typically studied following government terminations when political parties appoint their nominees into the state administration. However, patronage is understudied in cases when a change of minister takes place without government termination. Taking individual government ministers as the units of analysis, we identify four modalities of ministerial alterations: replacing, successive, incumbent, and switching ministers. We show that politicization occurs under “replacing ministers” following government termination, but the bureaucratic turnover is equally high under “successive ministers.” That suggests that patronage can be seen as an individualized power resource of autonomous ministers who exercise influence independently of their political parties.

  • Blame Avoidance Strategies of Multiple Administrative Agencies During
           Policy Failure: A Case Study of Taiwan’s 2014 Waste Oil Scandal
    • Authors: Hongwung Wang, Yi-Ching Tsai
      Abstract: Administration & Society, Ahead of Print.
      This study examines the blame avoidance (BA) strategies that may be adopted after policy failures of multiple agencies. A classification of agencies is proposed based on two factors: the amount of actual responsibility that an agency is obliged for, and the extent of an agency’s perceived responsibility. Agencies can thus be classified into four types, which may have different tactical goals and specific BA strategies that contradict other agencies’ goals, thereby leading to a complicated interaction between them. The results show that one of the three related agencies do not adopt suggested BA strategy and therefore fails to avoid blame.

  • Death by a Thousand 10-Minute Tasks: Workarounds and Noncompliance in
           University Research Administration
    • Authors: Barry Bozeman, Jan Youtie, Jiwon Jung
      Abstract: Administration & Society, Ahead of Print.
      The article examines administrative workarounds in the context of university research administration. The empirical results from 116 semi-structured interviews with academic researchers with active National Science Foundation awards are framed by a “Rules Response” model positing relationships among rules compliance requests, administrative burden, red tape, and response choices, including compliance, appeal, rule bending, rule breaking, and workaround behaviors. Propositions are presented and reviewed in light of empirical results. The article concludes the implications of empirical results for improving the Rules Response model and a more general discussion of research needed to improve the understanding of both rules compliance and workarounds.

  • Does Targeting Always Mean Retrenchment' Housing Assistance
           “Exceptionalism” in Canadian Welfare State
    • Authors: Maroine Bendaoud
      Abstract: Administration & Society, Ahead of Print.
      According to many scholars, policy targeting is the product of conservative and/or neoliberal politics. Targeting is perceived as a reduction of social welfare or a form of exclusion, usually resulting in no “winners” but only “losers.” Based on the study of housing assistance in Canadian provinces, this article argues that alternative views are possible. I emphasize the historic low coverage of housing assistance, that I term the housing “exceptionalism,” which refers to the small number of households who benefit from government support. The “exceptionalism” sets the stage to understanding why the vulnerable citizen winners have gained over the moderate-income losers.

      Abstract: Administration & Society, Ahead of Print.
      For many years, governments around the globe have been called on to increase the professionalism of their public services. The New Zealand Government Regulatory Practice Initiative (G-REG) is an illustrative example of a network of government agencies responding to this call by providing a program of standardized training for public servants. This article maps, explores, and interrogates this example to obtain a better understanding of whether a standardized program can help to nurture and increase the professionalism of a community of public servants. It finds that the main challenge of such an undertaking is finding a balance between narrow professionalism (technical expertise and knowledge) and broad professionalism (acting proficiently and ethically).

  • Target Groups on the Mainline: A Theoretical Framework of Policy Layering
           and Learning Disparity
    • Authors: Taehyon Choi, So Won Seon
      Abstract: Administration & Society, Ahead of Print.
      In research on policy learning, target groups’ responses have been insufficiently investigated. This article aims to expand the theory of policy learning by focusing on the effect of policy layering on disparity in learning among target groups, and its social consequences. Using the case of South Korea’s education policy, we show that policy layering to pursue multiple goals over 25 years has resulted in a complexly layered policy structure that has generated a discriminatory effect among different target groups and policy instability. We conclude that research on target groups renders implications for effective and ethical policy learning.

  • Volunteer Use as a Service Delivery Alternative: The Case of Law
           Enforcement Agencies
    • Authors: Seong C. Kang
      Abstract: Administration & Society, Ahead of Print.
      Few studies have explored the question of why public agencies use volunteers in service provision. Using data from a survey of law enforcement agencies in the United States, this study explores the factors associated with volunteer officer involvement. Key findings suggest that resource deficiency is strongly associated with the degree of using volunteer officers, while the presence of an active collective bargaining agreement is somewhat mixed. Agencies that encourage officers to engage in collaborative problem-solving with the community are more likely to use volunteer officers. The results provide important insight regarding the factors associated with volunteers in public services.

  • The Contingent Value of Political Connections on Donations to Chinese
           Foundations: Exploring the Moderating Role of Transparency
    • Authors: Yuan Cheng, Zhongsheng Wu
      Abstract: Administration & Society, Ahead of Print.
      Existing studies assume that the value of political connections is homogeneous to different types of nonprofits and seldom consider their interplay with other accountability mechanisms. Based on a multilevel analysis of 2,085 foundations in China, this study builds and tests a theoretical framework of the contingent value of political connections to nonprofits, treating transparency as a moderator for the relationship between political connections and donations. Our findings suggest that while transparency is positively associated with the amount of donations obtained by foundations, political connections can help foundations obtain more donations only when their transparency score is higher than a certain threshold.

  • Public–Nonprofit Collaboration in Homeless Services: Are Nonprofit-Led
           Networks More Effective in Winning Federal Funding'
    • Authors: Jesus N. Valero, David Lee, Hee Soun Jang
      Abstract: Administration & Society, Ahead of Print.
      Does the nonprofit leadership have an impact on the performance of collaborative networks' This article examines the degree to which nonprofit-led network and other governance characteristics matter in explaining the performance of network achieving federal funding. Specifically, we hypothesize that networks led by nonprofit organizations may achieve more funding and project award than those led by government organizations. Using data from a national survey of local homeless service networks, we find that contrary to the hypothesized expectations, networks led by nonprofits are less successful in federal funding and project award than networks led by government organizations.

  • Corruption, Democracy, and Privately Financed Infrastructure
    • Authors: Anthony M. Bertelli, Valentina Mele, Eleanor Florence Woodhouse
      Abstract: Administration & Society, Ahead of Print.
      Do political institutions moderate the influence of corruption on privately financed infrastructure projects' We argue that electoral competition incentivizes politicians to monitor bureaucratic corruption and focus on the public benefits of projects. Without such incentives, corruption is not monitored and the private benefits of bribes and favorable contract terms are responsible for increasing numbers of projects. Studying 116 countries between 1984 and 2012, we find that as public-sector corruption increases in democracies, no change in the number of projects is observed, while more projects emerge in non-democracies as corruption worsens.

  • Presidential Reorganization and the Politics of Public Agencies
    • Authors: Andrew B. Whitford
      Abstract: Administration & Society, Ahead of Print.
      Modern American public welfare agencies are the results of the continual reorganization of multiple agencies, departments, and programs. I develop four themes about the micro-foundations of reorganization in this article to illustrate how politics intersect with agency structure and the reshaping of the national bureaucracy. The empirical part of this article examines President Dwight D. Eisenhower’s assembling of a national health, education, and public welfare agency. The creation of the Department of Health, Education, and Welfare (HEW) in 1953 represents a critical juncture in that evolutionary process.

  • How Public Managers Make Tradeoffs Regarding Lives: Evidence From a Flood
           Planning Survey Experiment
    • Authors: Patrick S. Roberts, Lucia Velotti, Kris Wernstedt
      Abstract: Administration & Society, Ahead of Print.
      Public managers make decisions that may directly or indirectly affect the loss of human life, but there are few empirical analyses of whether and how public managers make tradeoffs among lives and other goods. We survey local government managers in the United States about tradeoffs using a vignette experiment with hypothetical flood scenarios. We find that managers make tradeoffs regarding lives saved compared with other features of the scenario, including project cost and property damage. Public works managers show a greater aversion to fatalities, while city managers and planners appear less averse. Our study also finds evidence of an equity preference.

  • Administration of Community Participation in Small-Scale Projects:
           Brownfield Remediation in Los Angeles
    • Authors: Heather Campbell, Adam Eckerd, Yushim Kim
      Abstract: Administration & Society, Ahead of Print.
      This study examines when and how community involvement occurs in the remediation processes of brownfield sites in Los Angeles County, California. Although community participation is usually considered important for determining what happens with these sites, our results indicate that, except in sometimes triggering evaluation by alerting authorities about it, community involvement almost never occurs when important decisions are made. Participation does sometimes occur, but when and how cleanup occurs is driven by administrative processes, with bureaucrats following procedure, rather than following community preferences. The findings suggest that the best space for communities in the process may be the identification of sites that need remediation.

  • Public–Private Partnerships in the Preservation of Presidential
           Records
    • Authors: Daniel Boden, Patrick C. Exmeyer
      Abstract: Administration & Society, Ahead of Print.
      The National Archives and Records Administration, in partnership with private support foundations, administers 13 individual presidential libraries comprising the Presidential Library System. These privately constructed, publicly supported archives not only preserve official presidential records but through their museum displays offer visitors a glimpse into the life and times of specific presidents. Utilizing legislation, archival documents, and elite interviews to characterize governance and administration structures of these relationships, this study outlines the nature of current public–private partnerships within the Presidential Library System, as well as the potential departure from existing frameworks for future partnerships absent formalized guidance procedures.

  • Perceptions of the Frontline Craft: Assessing Value Convergence Between
           Policy Makers, Managers, and Street-Level Professionals in the Prison
           Sector
    • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Racial Bias: A Buried Cornerstone of the Administrative State
    • Authors: Jennifer Alexander, Camilla Stivers
      First page: 1470
      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.

  • “Who’s Been Fooling Who'” Reflections on Truth and Deception in
           Politics and Their Implications for Public Administration
    • Authors: Michael W. Spicer
      First page: 1491
      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.

  • Behavioural Insights Teams (BITs) and Policy Change: An Exploration of
           Impact, Location, and Temporality of Policy Advice
    • Authors: Ishani Mukherjee, Sarah Giest
      First page: 1538
      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.

  • Side-Effects of Representation: Measuring the Impact of Representative
           Hiring on Employment Discrimination Complaints
    • Authors: Ashley M. Alteri
      First page: 1562
      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.

  • Vision, Voice, and Technology: Is There a Global “Open
           Government” Trend'
    • Authors: Sabina Schnell
      First page: 1593
      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.
