65 FOUR Decision-making Introduction Poor decision-making is often said to be linked to wrongful convictions and other MOJs. In research for the RCCJ, Maguire and Norris (1992) identified decision-making as one of the most common reasons for MOJs. They suggested that detective training should include this issue in a more fundamental way. Decision-making skills have been highlighted as crucial to detective practice (Smith and Flanagan, 2000; O’Neill, 2011; Westera et al, 2014). Some attempts have been made to address decision making in the form of guidance

Psychology has made a range of important contributions to policing, from how police carry out their duties and how the force works as an organisation, to how police work affects individual officers and staff. In particular, decision-making research can help explain how decisions are really made in policing-related circumstances as well as inform the development of decision-making tools and aids. In policing, decisions must be made all the time, often under extremely challenging situations, and the outcomes of police decisions can be life changing both for the

193 NINE Participatory decision making Of the four classic governance strategies, none regards power balance as a challenge requiring ongoing adjustment. The hierarchical strategy assumes people will accept power differences as a fact of life, and not seek to usurp the order of things. The minimalist takes it that without a central authority amassing power, nobody else would either. The egalitarian believes the issue can be resolved once and for all with everyone having the same power, even though that can only be secured paradoxically by a very powerful

, how they are made, by whom and to what end, that is of primary interest’ ( O’Leary, 2019 ). Or, as Glendon Schubert (1957) argued, ‘a theory of “the public interest” in administrative decision-making ought, one supposes, to describe a relationship between a concept of the public interest and official behaviour’ (p 346). In this chapter, consideration is given to how PSMT deals with administrative decision-making; with how public employees put their public service motivation into practice in their work. The chapter explores how PSMT explains (or does not discuss

259 FIFTEEN The news media and decision making Vlastimil Nečas, Tomáš Trampota Introduction The growing interest in investigating the links between the media and politics in the first half of the last century led to the gradual formation of a specific academic discipline generally referred to as political communication and defined as: ‘the role of communication in the political process’ (Chaffee, 1975, p 15). Its origins are linked to the development of communication studies and mass communication theory in the United States in the first half of the last

has become commonplace, which has impacted on changing legislative and policy drivers for gerontological social work ( Ray, Bernard and Phillips, 2018 ). Social workers have a key role to play in ensuring the participation of all older people in assessments, care planning and decision making in ways that uphold human rights, autonomy and self-determination. The application of a critical gerontological lens is particularly important in a context of neoliberalism and scarce resources, where social workers are increasingly reliant on informal caregivers, mainly family

81 SeVen Privatisation and policy decision-making in Brazil Licinio Velasco and Armando Castelar Pinheiro Introduction In one of the most sweeping privatisation programmes in history, Brazil has transferred control of more than 100 state-owned enterprises (SOEs) to the private sector, thereby raising tens of billions of dollars in revenue, which has helped control spiralling public debt. These results are even more impressive in view of the considerable degree of mistrust that existed in both the Brazilian state and society at the time – as it does to this

103 SEVEN Assessment and decision making Introduction Assessment has often been the central core of social work with adults (Richards, 2000) – although this has frequently been used explicitly for gatekeeping purposes. As we have previously noted, numerous policy documents often indicate that social workers should become more involved in advocacy and brokerage (HM Government, 2007; DH, 2008) and that, consequently, they would be required to perform fewer assessment tasks than has been the norm under community care. The assumption that staff will complete
