This book aims to place ethical practice on the agenda of local government and to locate local government in the expanding international network of public sector ethics. Beyond the development of codes of conduct (an important first step), the contributors consider ways in which theories of ethical behaviour can be brought to bear on the practices of local government. Contributors cover areas from the UK, where local government has had responsibility for a large range of service delivery, to Australia. From megalopolises, such as Los Angeles, to villages, towns, and cities in Australia and Canada. Each chapter focuses on different aspects of local government that we hope will assist local government practitioners in dealing with issues of ethical practice. Overall, this volume combines background information on ethics for local government officials and bodies with practical guidance for implementing a local government ethics policy.
