Ethics and Social Justice
|Ethics and Social Justice|
|week 6 public administration
Codes of honor, morals, and ethics should be the guiding forces for all organizations. Ethical dilemmas, and the ethical codes they warrant, have their roots in history. Starting with the Roman Empire and moving through to modern times, public administration—with its various hierarchies and levels of authority and power—has continued to be susceptible to ethical issues and possible corruption, both of which impact social justice. In this Discussion, you identify a contemporary public or nonprofit organization facing an ethics problem and consider how an organization might address this problem.
For this Discussion, review this week’s Learning Resources, and select a case study (e.g., universal health care by Clemmitt, whistleblowing by Ventriss and Barney, or farm policy by Weeks). Consider what ethical breaches occurred and how they might have been avoided. Ethics and Social Justice.
With these thoughts in mind:
Post a brief description of the public administrator’s ethical issue in the case you selected. Explain the ethical breaches within the organization. Explain how this ethical issue might have been addressed to avoid an ethical breach. Use specific references from the selected case study to support your answer. Ethics and Social Justice.
Support your postings with specific references to all resources used in its preparation. Use correct APA formatting for all resources.
provide additional perspectives on ethical issues from personal experience or the Learning Resources.
