Ethics in Public Policy and Management A global research companion

by Alan Lawton

Ethics in Public Policy and Management A global research companion Synopsis

Ethics in Public Policy and Management: A global research companion showcases the latest research from established and newly emerging scholars in the fields of public management and ethics. This collection examines the profound changes of the last 25 years, including the rise of New Public Management, New Public Governance and Public Value; how these have altered practitioners' delivery of public services; and how academics think about those services. Drawing on research from a broad range of disciplines, Ethics in Public Policy and Management looks to reflect on this changing landscape. With contributions from Asia, Australasia, Europe and the USA, the collection is grouped into five main themes: theorising the practice of ethics; understanding and combating corruption; managing integrity; ethics across boundaries; expanding ethical policy domains. This volume will prove thought-provoking for educators, administrators, policy makers and researchers across the fields of public management, public administration and ethics.

Balfour, Grand Valley State University, USA `An excellent collection covering an eclectic range of issues from public service motivation to the ethics involved in space exploration. It poses a series of thoughtful questions for global ethics research.' - Dr James Downe, Reader, Public Policy & Management, Cardiff Business School, UK
