Praise for the Fifth Edition of The ResponsibleAdministrator "Cooper's fifth edition is the definitive text for students andpractitioners who want to have a successful administrative career.Moral reasoning, as Cooper so adeptly points out, is essential intoday's rapidly changing and complex globalenvironment."—Donald C. Menzel, president, American Societyfor Public Administration, and professor emeritus, publicadministration, Northern Illinois University "The Responsible Administrator is at once the mostsophisticated and the most practical book available on publicsector ethics. It is conceptually clear and jargon-free, which isextraordinary among books on administrative ethics."—H.George Frederickson, Stone Distinguished Professor of PublicAdministration, University of Kansas "Remarkably effective in linking the science of what should bedone with a prescriptive for how to actually do it, the fifthedition of Cooper's book keeps pace with the dynamic changes in thefield, both for those who study it and those who practice it. Theinformation presented in these pages can be found nowhere else, andit is information we cannot ethically afford toignore."—Carole L. Jurkiewicz, John W.

Are public servants responsible for the outcomes of government actions to which they contribute? Do they have an obligation to pursue the public interest? Are there limits on the extent of their loyalty to political masters? How do they avoid conflict of interest? Is it possible to accommodate the competing demands of openness and confidentiality, or personal privacy and public security? To whom are they accountable? How can they build a strong ethical culture in their organization or agency? This book examines these and other difficult questions faced by public servants trying to sort out what it means to be a responsible public servant in the 21st century. This is the second edition of a book that has become Canada’s best-selling volume on public service ethics. Thousands of students and government employees at the federal, provincial and municipal levels have used The Responsible Public Servant in the classroom and professional development workshops to guide their consideration of ethical dilemmas which public servants face on a daily basis. The new edition has the same focus and plain language approach as the original volume but is completely rewritten to reflect the impact of recent political, technological and societal changes on the role and responsibility of public servants. Each chapter contains short case studies based on real events to provide readers with an opportunity to test their views on the nature of responsible behavior. The Responsible Public Servant does not preach to the reader. Instead it encourages the habit of ethical discourse in the conduct of public affairs and argues that moral calculus is just as important to a public servant as technical analysis and operational skills. It challenges the reader to think about whether he or she is acting in a way that is ethically defensible.

Advances in Responsible Land Administration challenges conventional forms of land administration by introducing alternative approaches and provides the basis for a new land administration theory. A compilation of observations about responsible land administration in East Africa, it focuses on a new empirical foundation rather than preexisting ideals. Presenting practical knowledge resulting from real cases, it incorporates empirical studies highlighting Rwanda, Ethiopia, Tanzania, Uganda, and Kenya. The book considers contemporary change forces that include responsible technological innovation, post-conflict contexts, rural poverty, rapid urbanization, food security, and citizen participation. It covers land information system design, innovative data capture tools and techniques, and algorithms and approaches to support land consolidation and pastoralist land administration. The book also evaluates the outcomes of approaches specifically geared toward workflow design, land use changes, land tenure perceptions, conflict reduction, and governance measures. Outlining key aspects of what fit for purpose land administration looks like, this book presents: A contemporary update for the land administration sector An overview of East African developments, a current focus region for innovative land administration design A collection of cutting-edge tools from practice and for practice—with enough support data and methodological underpinnings to be readily utilized for advocacy, design, and assessment Advances in Responsible Land Administration is an up-to-date discourse that promotes the theoretical notion of responsible land administration. The book highlights real cases, provides real data, and introduces novel alternatives to conventional methodologies in land administration. Using the information in this book, you can develop a coherent theoretical foundation for further research in this area.

Towards Responsible Government In East Asia

This book explores the idea of responsible government in East Asia, arguing that many recent governance crises have resulted from responsibility failures on a huge scale. It distinguishes between accountability, which it argues has been overemphasised recently, and responsibility, which it argues goes beyond accountability, true responsible government involving the actor in feeling liable for and taking responsibility for his or her actions. It shows how historically the concept of responsibility is more embedded in political discussions in Asia, whereas the concepts of democracy and accountability are more embedded in the intellectual traditions of Europe, but that the challenges of revolution and post-revolution, decolonization and post-colonization and neo-liberal globalization have complicated matters. Drawing on a wide range of case studies from East Asia, and relating the concepts discussed to political theory, ethics and social psychology, the book shows how actors in government and society interact to deliberate, produce or distract from the practice and perception of “responsible government”, and suggests how the concept of “responsible government”, better defined, might be encouraged to produce better governance.
