This course introduces students to approaches to ethical reasoning and provides a frame of reference for examining contemporary practice. Interactions between public sector managers and other internal and external stakeholders, including the general public, private sector and non‐government organizations, are given special attention. The course critically examines the responsibility of public managers for the power that they exercise, assesses the ethical standards that public managers bring to decision making, examines the mechanisms employed to ensure ethical standards, and make recommendations to improve the ethics infrastructure.
