Ethics, Integrity, and Aptitude in Governance

About the Book

In order to supplement the explanations and discussions, Ethics, Integrity and Aptitude in Governance closely follows a ‘consilience’ approach to topics wherein facts are intricately linked to the theories across relevant disciplines. This approach will help students to trace the evolution of concepts such as ethics, good governance and others, and assess their application in the real world. The book will prove to be an indispensable companion for students and practitioners of public administration in developing a holistic understanding of the challenges of public service in democratic nations like India. It is supported by illustrations, highlights of recent research and studies, and examples created out of the participant–observant experiences of the author as a public servant.
