From CAF Network
Ethics
Ethics in public service may be defined as those common values and norms to which public servants subscribe in carrying out their duties. The moral nature of these values/norms, which may be stated or implicit, refer to what is considered to be right, wrong, good or bad behaviour. Whereas values serve as moral principles, norms may also state what is legally and morally correct in a given situation.
