Barely three years into a new political dispensation, South Africans from across all sectors of society were involved in developing a national ethics framework in the context of government's campaign against corruption. The National anti-corruption conference in Parliament, Cape Town, 1998, was followed in April 1999 with the National Summit where relevant stakeholders deliberated on measures for all South Africans 'to work towards a higher moral purpose'. This volume reflects the effort by the Public Service Commission to engage the different sectors of society in a partnership in getting various stakeholders to agree to a 'consensual validation' on the way forward. Public officials, academics and other corruption 'fighters' were invited to contribute to this discussion on ethics management. Elements of a national strategy might include the formation of a national ethics structure to combat and prevent corruption, development of ethics training modules for schools and colleges; establishment of telephone hotlines to report unethical behaviour; a sustained media campaign to raise awareness on ethical issues, and the evolution of a culture of zero tolerance for immoral behaviour.Th
