1. King, Stephen. "Teaching Public Management in the Public Interest: Using the New Public Service Model to Teach Undergraduates in Political Science and Public Administration" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the The Midwest Political Science Association, Palmer House Hilton, Chicago, Illinois, Apr 20, 2006 <Not Available>. 2019-04-23 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p140908_index.html>

Abstract: Teaching public management to undergraduate students is challenging. This paper examines one such attempt: to explain public management to undergraduate political science students enrolled in an introductory public administration course. In recent decades, much has been written about managing the public sector more like a business and less like a government. Government management is generally termed wasteful and paper focuses less on how to teach public management in the public interest to undergraduates and more on what should be taught about public management in the public interest. In order to accomplish this goal the paper does three things: 1) it defines public management, 2) describes several competing theories of public management, 3) explains how the New Public Service is applied to various public management situations and realities, and 4) offers conclusions and implications for teaching and research in public management.

Abstract: This project attempts to explain levels of public support for increases in state cigarette taxes. Existing models of policy making expect that support for policy proposals is at least somewhat linked to expectations of the efficacy of the policy. At a minimum, this project tests that hypothesis by addressing the link between support for a cigarette tax increase and expectations that such an increase will reduce smoking. However, cigarette taxes are not merely public health regulations. They are also public finance tools, and can serve as a reliable revenue stream for a state government. The second question this project thus addresses is: does support for a cigarette tax increase diminish, even amongst those who expect the tax to reduce smoking, if the revenue is to be used for the general fund (rather than, say, a public health or anti-smoking program)? In other words, do cigarette taxes have to be justified as public health policies in order to secure public support, or are expectations of effectiveness in reducing smoking sufficient? Data for the project have already been collected, via a survey of 1,950 adults in the state of Iowa, conducted in 2006.

Abstract: In 2007 there was considerable public controversy over a public funding model for the eventual Real Salt Lake soccer stadium in Utah. Previous research found that public conversations take on a different character when discussants play directly to a media audience. In 2011 the researchers wanted to further examine how public policy practitioners dealt effectively with media scrutiny in the real world? And, how, if at all, the media can be leveraged as an effective communications tool in public policy negotiations?”

Ten public relations strategies that have been developed in two-way public relations and conflict resolution were evaluated with participation from government, the media, and public relations personnel representing RSL. Findings showed that the influence of the media lengthened the time of the controversy but it played a vital role in educating different publics on the issue. Public relations personnel were influential to help reach compromise on the issues until the public vote that approved the stadium.

Abstract: China’s media has been long tightly controlled by the government. However, the information technology has offered Chinese an alternative to give their voice. Facing the growing opinion gathering on microblog, the authority decides to apply “Real Name Policy”, which forced users to give their real name in the name of “build a healthy online environment”, to microblog users. By analyzing the contents from Chinese microblog and news articles from official news outlet which consist with newspapers, official websites and other related websites, we find that the attitudes on Real Name Policy from the unofficial sources that dominated by the general public are significantly different from those from official sources: the former is much more negative.
Accepting that there are different discourses of public in the Chinese Context, based on the theory of formal and informal public sphere we argue that the officials are trying to construct a pseudo-public. It is a sphere connected officials and the public, in which the official hired online commentators, as well as authority-controlled traditional media, disguised as common people and pretend to distort public opinion. In this way, the government aims to legitimate the application of Real Name Policy. Using this as a focal point, this research is also trying to explore the contradiction and connection between formal and informal public sphere in the Chinese context, and examine the potential threat brought by 50-Cent Party to online deliberation.
