Kathy Quick Co-Authors New Study on Policing
July 12, 2023

Associate Professor Kathy Quick is co-author of an article in Public Management Review, “Public management and policing: a dialectical inquiry,” which strikes up a conversation between public management and policing studies, arguing that, through this dialectical inquiry, concepts and theories in both fields can be reviewed and improved. 

The authors explore areas with particular potential for cross-fertilization: basic rationales used in public management; the saliency of state authority and legitimacy in policing; questions of public value creation (or destruction); and dilemmas of pursuing equity.
