The Network for Integrity aims to develop an international culture of integrity, transparency and ethics in public life. With the current declining trust in government and democracy in general, citizens are asking for more ethical behaviours from public officials. Many organizations have identified ethics and anti-corruption as critical to a country’s successful development and good governance.
This paper aims to provide some general guidelines on ethics and integrity that would apply to all public servants, regardless of their institution. It also includes a self-evaluation manual that can help public servants assess their institution’s level of commitment to ethical values as well as their own.
