The Public Service Research Group (PSRG) ethics research focuses on exploring the values, cultures and norms of individuals, organisations and institutions. We seek to understand how they emerge, change and influence practice. The evaluation of a company's value, performance and contribution is increasingly measured in terms of ethics, values and integrity. These assessments lead to conclusions about their purpose, legitimacy, commitment and accountability, leading to favourable or unfavourable conclusions about their trustworthiness, standards and conduct.
This theme brings together researchers with a broad range of theoretical and methodological expertise across a diversity of domains. We have extensive experience with an array of well-established, emerging and innovative methods. Given our expertise, we contribute to the development of novel approaches to understanding and resolving complex problems.
