Ethics, Values and Integrity
PSRG ethics research has a firm focus on exploring values, cultures and norms of individuals, organisations and institutions, seeking to understand how they emerge, change and influence practice. Organisations and institution are increasingly assessed in terms of their ethics, values and integrity as a part of evaluations of their value, performance and contribution. These assessments lead to conclusions about their purpose, legitimacy, commitment and accountability, leading to favourable or unfavourable conclusions about their trustworthiness, standards and conduct.
