Item description for Ethics and Accountability in a Context of Governance and New Public Management: EGPA Yearbook (International Institute of Administrative Sciences Monographs, Vol. 7) by A. Hondeghem...
Ethics and accountability have become important themes for modern government as in most of the countries there is a severe crisis of legitimacy. Increasingly there is a feeling that performance management alone will not solve this crisis. Citizens also expect from politicians and public servants ethical responsible conduct. As to the ethics, however, there is a problem. Governance and new public management have raised new problems which cannot be solved by referring to the traditional bureaucratic ethics. Devolution and decentralisation processes have enhanced the responsibility of public servants. The increase of transparency and openness and the service orientation of public organisations have challenged the traditional values of discretion and equality before the rule. The growing interaction between the public and the private sector have raised the question of integrity. In light of these developments, it is important to update the ethical system, or reversibly, the traditional values of the public service can question some actual evolutions in government. This book is the result of the annual conference of the European Group of Public Administration, which took place in Leuven in September 1997. It includes the keynote speeches of the conference, the reports of the working and study groups and a selection of papers referring to the conference theme.
