ISTPP’s Drs. Xinsheng Liu and Arnold Vedlitz recently published a paper with Dr. Youlang Zhang (ISTPP Fellow and Assistant Professor at Renmin University of China) in Public Management Review.
In this paper, titled “Issue-Specific Knowledge and Willingness to Coproduce: The Case of Public Security Services,” the authors draw theoretical insights from coproduction literature and employ data from the 2016 National Public Survey of Lone Wolf Terrorism Risk Perception to examine how citizens’ knowledge and understanding of specific terrorism issues affect their willingness to coproduce public security services with professional public service agents. They find that individual citizens with more knowledge about recent terror attacks are more willing to coproduce public security services that require them to make sacrifices and commitments of their time, convenience, and privacy.
