Description:

Practical Ethics in Public Administration is a skillful blend of theory and practice, with many case examples taken from daily public service. Students will be introduced to historical ethical theories – and how they combine in a unified ethical approach that can be applied to everyday situations. They’ll learn the ethical nature of questions such as whether to fire an employee…how to allocate departmental funds…how to rate an employee on a yearly evaluation…policies of confidentiality…and more. The new second edition features updated examples, guidelines, and hypothetical cases…two new chapters, one on how to address conflict by applying the unified ethic and a second on the ethics involved in leadership development…and new discussions of personal and professional issues such as new public management and creating public value.
