CORD research highlighted at PMRC

CORD faculty and doctoral students were well represented at this year's Public Management Research Conference (PMRC).

Held in Aarhaus, Denmark, the conference is the premier conference in public management sponsored by the Public Management Research Association (PMRA), which also manages the field's number one journal, The Journal of Public Administration Research and Theory (JPART).

One whole session at the conference was devoted to papers based on CORD’s recent survey, National Administrative Studies Project-Citizens (NASP-C). This survey is the most recent version of a series of NASP surveys that have over the years provided data for more than 100 published research papers. CORD expects to make the NASP-C data available to other researchers this November.

CORD attendees at the conference included Barry Bozeman, Stuart Bretschneider, Monica Gaugan, Mary Feeney, Derrick Anderson and Justin Stritch along with graduate students Jiwon Jung and Gabel Taggart.

Both students presented papers at the conference.

Taggart had two papers. The first, Citizens Perceptions of Procedural Fairness in Public Administration Processes: The Moderating Roles of Belief in a Just World and Public Service Motivation, co-authored with Mogens Pederson of Aarhus University and Justin Stritch of ASU, was presented by Mogens. Taggart presented the second, Bringing the Client Back into Organizational Red Tape Research, co-authored with Wesley Kaufmann of the University of Groningen.

Jung said it was the first time she attended an international conference.

“I greatly enjoyed the experience of meeting prominent scholars in the field across countries as well as presenting my research and receiving constructive feedback,” Jung said of the working paper on Organizational Adoption of Social Media: Role of Intrapreneur and Sector, co-authored with Stuart Bretschneider.
