How to Tackle Corruption? Managing Ethically in the Public Sector


To improve or safeguard organizational integrity, the boards of many forprofit, not-for-profit, and government organizations have developed various policies ranging from codes of conduct and whistle-blower procedures to job rotation and applicant screening procedures. More comprehensive strategies to influence organizational culture and climate include compliance and integrity approaches, with training and ethical leadership as important instruments for the latter. What do we know about the effectiveness of these strategies, policies and instruments? What helps and where to begin? How to manage ethically within the public sector?

In this lunch lecture by Karin Lasthuizen the effectiveness of a multitude of ethics instruments is discussed on the basis of the latest ethics management insights including a critical reflection on Good Governance in developed and developing countries as well.
