About Roundtable Discussion | Morality, integrity and corruption in public life: Do we need a new public service ethos?

The ethical principles that public leaders ought to serve are often described in terms of a ‘public service ethos’. When the beliefs and practices of public servants reflect the ethos public support and legitimacy ensues. However, ongoing issues with integrity and corruption in Australia suggest that the ethos needs to be revisited. This roundtable will bring together a panel of academic experts and practitioners to reflect on what principles and practices need to change to improve ethical standards in public life so that we can all benefit from a public sector ethos that is fit for purpose in the twenty-first century.

Join us for a roundtable discussing these issues, at 5pm on Wednesday, 5 October in ModWest Building, room 110/111. Light refreshments will be provided following the event.
