Charter of Administrative Ethics and Responsibilities (3)

Rights and Responsibilities Collective (India), January 2011

Since the exercise of administrative ethics and responsibilities by civil servants is critical to the stability of the democratic structure, harmony, peace, welfare and prosperity of citizens, it is exigent to have a defined Code of Administrative Ethics and Responsibilities. Such a code would be elucidated for the knowledge of citizens, the values that underlie their functioning and decision making, the standards of service expected and general norms of behaviour.

The Principles of the Charter of Human Responsibilities and York Willbern’s six fold classification of Public Morality , could form the foundation for drafting a Charter of Administrative Ethics and Responsibilities.

This draft was proposed for dialogue among civil servants on ‘Professional Ethics & Responsibilities of Civil Servants’ on 1st January 2011 in Goa, India.
