This report represents a new phase in South Africa's continuing campaign against corruption in the public and all other sectors of society. It repesents the commitment, ideas, and practical strategies of a wide range of groups, and as such, is a resource document, a perspective and a framework emanating from the National Anti-Corruption Summit of 14-15 April 1999. In the past, people felt strict guidelines and close supervision were the answer to compliance with codes of ethics and conduct. Experience has shown, however, that it is imperative that individuals internalise the standards and norms of ethical behaviour to ensure that the various codes are operationalised. The emphasis has clearly shifted to integration of common values into daily life and individual decisions, where individual judgement can be monitored and supported by an ethics-based civil culture. Only in this way can a civil and organisational culture of common values be developed. The ethos and culture within government and civil society can be built through communication and training, and, most importantly, through a process of continual dialogue on ethical issues by all the sectors of society concerned. This publication is part of that endeavour.
