about

The Politics of Ethics examines the obstacles to behaving ethically in organizations. Blending insights from behavioral science, action theory, and moral philosophy, Nielsen constructs a powerful framework for evaluating the strategies organizations employ to foster organizational ethics. Thebook scrutinizes several popular methods of overcoming obstacles to ethical behavior--ethics compliance codes, win-lose or win-win negotiating, whistle-blowing, dialog methods, due process systems--and weighs the strengths and weaknesses of each.
Richard P. Nielsen is at Boston College.
