In the first book of its kind, Leo Huberts provides a much-needed critical synthesis of cutting-edge research on public sector integrity. The study explores a range of issues relating to the topic, including the definition and importance of public sector integrity and the various methodological approaches to the field, as well as considering the causes for the violation of values associated with integrity. It examines the steps that can be taken to improve adherence to these values in an attempt to put ethics on the agenda of government and governance research. The result is a study that will constitute a vital resource for students and scholars of comparative politics, public policy and public administration
This book addresses a most important, yet hardly addressed topic in the field of ethics, values and norms in governance, that is, the integrity of our elites, administrators and street level bureaucrats. For more than two decades, Leo Huberts has done in-depth investigations on this dimension of public ethics and this book is the excellent culmination thereof. Because the book addresses the definition of integrity, the causes of integrity problems and relates this to principles of governance, this book is a must-read for all scholars and students interested in understanding what causes our leaders and their staff sometimes to act differently than they are supposed to act. Michiel S de Vries/President of IASIA, Chair in Public Administration, Radboud University Nijmegen
