Written to introduce students to the fundamentals of administrative responsibility and ethics, The Ethics Primer for Public Administrators in Government and Nonprofit Organizations provides a clear understanding of why ethics are important to administrators in governmental and non-profit organizations, and how these administrators can relate their own personal values to the norms of the public sector. The Ethics Primer guides the student to align his or her own ethical commitments with the ethical standards of the field. Further, it helps the reader understand how to put these standards into practice as an individual administrator and as a leader of a public or nonprofit organization. Utilizing the “ethics triangle” as a framework that stresses virtue, principles, and promoting good outcomes, this text clearly articulates for the reader the duties and responsibilities of public servants. Thoroughly updated, the Third Edition offers: – Greater attention to administrators in nonprofit organizations throughout the book. – New discussion of the American Society of Public Administration (ASPA) code of ethics, in addition to its focus on key professional codes as a guide to ethical behavior. – Stronger emphasis on reconciling one’s personal and professional code of ethics. – New Chapter (11) on Public Affairs Education and Ethics that examines the ethical issues and challenges associated with each of the NASPAA core competencies. – Updated Section on Responsible Whistleblowing features new information pertaining to the whistleblower report that contributed to investigation of presidential activities in Ukraine
