Curbing Unethical Behavior in Government

Front Cover
Greenwood Press, Jan 1, 1994 - Political Science - 257 pages

This comprehensive work details the special efforts that need to be initiated by governments on a continuing basis to eliminate unethical behavior by public officers and employees. The current conflict-of-interest programs are inadequate to eliminate corruption, and special controls should be installed to detect and deter unethical behavior. The evaluation of different approaches to ethical government and the development of a model ethics program are of special interest.
