Public service ethics and integrity: Some general lessons

Research output: Chapter in Book / Report / Conference proceedingChapterProfessional

Abstract

The ethics of counterterrorism (CT) involves more than questions on ‘tapping’ and ‘torture’. This chapter offers a general overview of contemporary public service ethics and integrity policies in order to draw some general lessons that might be applied - with modifications- to CT. First, a brief review is provided of the main theoretical approaches within applied ethics in general and public service ethics in particular. Next, conceptualisations of public integrity and integrity violations are discussed, to be followed by the various policies and measures to promote public integrity and their effectiveness. Finally, some practical lessons are drawn and their applicability to CT is considered.
