Haldane Prize

Richard HaldaneEach year a distinguished jury will award the Haldane prize to the author(s) of the best article published in Public Administration. The Haldane prize commemorates one of the founders of Public Administration (and first President of the Royal Institute of Public Administration), Richard Haldane.

"The Haldane Prize committee, consisting of , Evan Berman, Oliver James and Susanne Schmidt awards the 2016 Prize to Anthony M. Bertelli, J. Andrew Sinclair and Haram Lee for their article Media Attention and the Demise of Agency Independence: Evidence from a Mass Administrative Reorganization in Britain. In the committee’s view this article makes an innovative and significant contribution to understanding the termination of public organisations in democracies. Rather than agency death as a binary outcome (continued/terminated) the authors focus on the immediate and relevant political aftermath of the termination decision. This approach contributes a rich conceptualisation of termination with a clear measure of reputation in terms of media salience. The research uses a difference-in-differences statistical framework which is unusual in public administration and find that terminating agencies is an effective political control strategy, pointing to the difficulties that organisations of this kind have in establishing protective reputations."
