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 Steve Balla, Will Jennings, and Janine O’Flynn, awards the 2014 Prize to Oliver James and Alice Moseley for their article Does Performance Information about Public Services Affect Citizens’ Perceptions, Satisfaction, and Voice Behaviour?: Field Experiments with Absolute and Relative Performance Information. In the committee’s view, James and Moseley’s work is distinguished by its sophisticated theoretical framework and well-executed use of experimental and quantitative methods. The article, in demonstrating that local providers who most need to hear from citizens often do not, significantly advances understanding of the complex impacts of publishing performance information on citizen activism and government responsiveness.The Editors thank the awarding committee members, namely Steven Balla, Will Jennings and Janine O’Flynn for their invaluable assistance.
