Ethics for the Public Sector

Ethics for the Public Sector

Education and training

Edited by Noel Preston


An invaluable text for those designing or researching public sector ethics programs; its particular focus on ethics, education and training makes it unique within the Australian and New Zealand context.

Its sixteen chapters (plus an appendix) provide the rationale for ethics education in public sector agencies, analyse the dilemmas related to this enterprise, describe the range of public sector regimes in Australian and New Zealand jurisdictions, and offer practical guidance for implementing an ethics education or training program.

Leading academics and practitioners of administrative ethics provide an important contribution to the ongoing debate about ethics for public officials as well as an invaluable aid to those entrusted with the implementations of codes of conduct and ethics training. It is a must for public sector agency libraries, public sector managers and scholars of public administration.
