Ethics and Management in the Public Sector Paperback / softback
by Alan (Federation University, Australia) Lawton, Julie (Monash University, Australia) Rayner, Karin (VU University Amsterdam, the Netherlands) Lasthuizen
Part of the Routledge Masters in Public Management series
Grappling with ethical issues is a daily challenge for those working in organizations that deliver public services.
Such services are delivered through an often bewildering range of agencies and amidst this constant change, there are fears that a public service ethos, a tradition of working in the public interest, becomes blurred.
Using extensive vignettes and case studies, Ethics and Management in the Public Sector illuminates the practical decisions made by public officials.
The book takes a universal approach to ethics reflecting the world-wide impact of public service reforms and also includes discussions on how these reforms impact traditional vales and principles of public services. This easy-to-use textbook is a definitive guide for postgraduate students of public sector ethics, as well as students of public management and administration more generally.
