Ethics and Political Practice: Perspectives on Legislative Ethics: Perspectives on Legislative Ethics
Publication Date :
1 Jan 1998
This is published with Routledge. Legislative ethics - does such a thing exist? Can it? This book answers in contrast to the apparent agreement among the media and the public that the answer to both questions is a resounding 'No!'. Ethics and Political Practice considers both the existing problems, in term of perception (by the public and legislators themselves), institutions, education and procedures, and suggests ways forward for engendering and maintaining a healthy ethical community in the legislative sphere. Codes of conduct, the role of the media, the need for education and a balance between a maximalist versus a minimalist approach are discussed.
