Ethics In Public Management from the Author: H George Frederickson. "This book presents cutting-edge commentaries by leading scholars that address issues of public ethics in the current period of broken politics and challenged legitimacy. The contents of this new edition are completely new and reflect the work of many of the field's leading experts: Carole Jurkiewicz, H. George Frederickson, James Bowman, Rosemary O'Leary, Guy Adams, Danny Balfour, Terry Cooper, and many others. Each of the chapters falls under one of five topical themes: the moral architecture of organizations, reassessing corruption in the twenty-first century, individual volition within public institutions, ethics in nonprofit organizations, and ethical issues in global contexts. Since most chapters address institutional forces that affect organizational and individual behavior, the introductory and concluding chapters demonstrate how institutional matters shape the real world of public service."--Unedited summary from book.

Ethics For Public Managers from the Author: Harold F. Gortner. Interest in ethics within the field of public administration has grown steadily since the late 1970s. Harold Gortner focuses on public administration ethics theory and how it applies to the lives of managers operating in the middle ranges of public bureaucracy. Using a general review of the literature on public administration ethics and a comparison of that literature to the real-life experiences of civil service managers, he categorizes the literature and measures its "relevance" to the thought processes, decisions, and actions of individuals within a bureaucracy. According to Gortner, the literature on public administration can be divided into five meaningful categories: philosophical discussions of ethics; professional aspects of ethics; personal characteristics and their influence on ethics; organizational dynamics and their influence on ethics; and legal aspects of ethics. Because an understanding of these five approaches to public administration is helpful in understanding the arguments that are presented, each is discussed at some length within the volume. Gortner then examines these categories in light of the real-life experiences of public managers, thereby helping the reader to understand which of the various ethical arguments are most meaningful to practicing managers, and why those particular approaches are useful or applicable to their ethical dilemmas. Gortner's effort to balance theory and practice will interest scholars and practitioners of public administration alike.

Ethics And Accountability In A Context Of Governance And New Public Management from the Author: Annie Hondeghem. Ethics and accountability have become important themes for modern government, as in most of the countries there is a severe crisis of legitimacy. Increasingly there is a feeling that performance management alone will not solve this crisis. Citizens also expect from politicians and public servants ethical responsible conduct. As to the ethics, however, there is a problem. Governance and new public management have raised new problems which cannot be solved by referring to the traditional bureaucratic ethics. Devolution and decentralisation processes have enhanced the responsibility of public servants. The increase of transparency and openness and the service orientation of public organisations have challenged the traditional values of discretion and equality before the rule. The growing interaction between the public and the private sector have raised the question of integrity. In light of these developments, it is important to update the ethical system, or reversibly, the traditional values of the public service can question some actual evolutions in government.

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.

Ethically problematic cases occur everywhere, but rarely can the implications be as wide-reaching or the consequences as serious as with those in the arena of public management. Most people working in the public sector want to do the 'right' thing, but the issues involved can be complex, and sometimes the answers are anything but easy. This third edition of Practical Ethics in Public Administration offers, at its core, the tools, techniques and methods needed to clarify difficult or problematic ethical situations and to determine the best course of action. Designed for use as a text on public administration and professional ethics courses, or as a reference book for those working in the public sector, Practical Ethics in Public Administrationis an engaging and informative blend of theory and practice. The authors introduce established ethical theories and, using real-life and hypothetical examples, develop a unified ethical approach that can be applied to everyday situations. Readers will learn the ethical nature of questions such as whether to fire an employee, how to allocate departmental funds and how to evaluate an employee's performance in a yearly appraisal. New material in this edition also covers the emerging ethical issues related to private-public partnerships, the shift from compliance-based to moral-based integrity and the context of moral complacency.
