求是学术讲座第120讲:公共服务动机:来自发展中国家的视角

      【主讲嘉宾】 Aisha Azhar

      【题      目】 Public Service Motivation: A View from the Developing World 公共服务动机:来自发展中国家的视角

      【内容简介】From a broad ethnographic study of public service motivation among the public employees of Pakistan, the authors formulate a model of PSM in developing countries that contrasts with existing western models of PSM. They find that, because of the different cultural background, public employees could not associate with the principal motivational structure of a public servant generally depicted in the western world. While they demonstrated the concerns related with empathy and compassion, they could not relate them with public service. Moreover, the antecedents for these altruistic concerns were related primarily with religion Islam.

Self-selection into the public service is majorly the pursuit of power, position and sometimes the opportunities for corruption.  The presenter concludes that competing assumptions of PSM in developing worlds are not irrational, but they are embedded in the local rationalities that admittedly countervail the ethical foundations of public service. These local rationalities are invariably acceptable in the developing world particularly the post-colonial societies.
