For this section we have 2 readings:
- De Bruijn, J. A. & Dicke, W. (2006). ‘Strategies for safeguarding public values in liberalized utility sectors.’ Public Administration 84(3): 717-735.
- Veeneman, W., Dicke, W. & De Bruijne, M. (2009). ‘From clouds to hailstorms: a policy and administrative science perspective on safeguarding public values in networked infrastructures.‘ International Journal of Public Policy 4(5): 414-434. Preprint.
An important conclusion in this paper is that the character of public values undergoes significant changes in each of the explained stages of the decision-making process, generally from more abstract notions to more concrete. With the level of abstraction, the content of the public value also tends to shift from stage to stage, as explained in the web lecture of Wijnand Veeneman. This might be very recognizable for you within your own context.
