POLS 4390 - Ethics in Government


The nature of politics that necessitates coalition-building, bargaining, and compromise seems to train political actors to skirt ethical issues, often spilling over into acts of self-aggrandizing behavior and breaches of public trust. This course will present philosophies, models, and analytical approaches to ethics that will help future politicians and public servants to identify ethical problems, to address them methodically, to avoid scandalous incidents, and to provide sound forms of public service.
