Code of Ethics in Public Administration

Why would those in public administration commit to a code of ethics?

What problems might this cause for them? What is the role of reform in the context of ethics? What does it mean to be a member of the public administration profession? To whom should these members be accountable? How do public administrators best facilitate consistent ethical action? Base your answer on the reading “Chapter 32: Embracing Ethical Principles for Public Action” by Brian N. Williams in “Handbook of Public Administration” by Christensen & Perry.
