Handbook on Corruption, Ethics and Integrity in Public Administration

About the eBook

This timely Handbook unpacks the underlying common factors that give rise to corrupting environments. Investigating opportunities to deliver ethical public policy, it proposes strategies for building integrity and diminishing corruption in public administration.

Beginning with an exploration of contemporary global trends in public administration and its vulnerability to corruption today, this Handbook sheds light on the avenues for corruption to access health care, education and local government sectors, as well as the effects of corruption on environmental protection, policing and the justice system and border administration. Employing an international approach, chapters consider how different national administrative environments shape corruption, and how governments seek to eradicate the unique problems that it poses. It concludes by scrutinizing the responses taken by public administrators in dealing with corrupt activities and highlighting opportunities to build integrity in the future.

Featuring both theoretical illuminations and real-word insights, this Handbook is key reading for academics and researchers of public administration and management. Policymakers will also benefit from the proposed strategies for tackling public administrative corruption and building integrity.
