Abstract

The importance of this guidance is that it provides practical support for professionals in interpreting the law, regulatory guidance, and expectations of public ethics (namely both the ethics of the public and the ethical obligations of those taking decisions in public roles). It does this by explaining what is at stake but also illustrating it with concrete examples.
