Ethics and the Public Service provides a framework for the discussion of specific ethical challenges that members of the public service might face in the course of their work. Additionally, and perhaps more importantly, it seeks to explain why an ethical public service is so vital to democracy and good government. It explores and presents the value of ethics codes, the importance of independent oversight, and the contribution of ethical leadership to the achievement of public trust, political legitimacy, and the integrity of government programs.
