Research Note - Low Road Ethics Management: A Baseline Study of Government Departments in the Western Division of Fiji


  • Asinate Mausio


This research note discusses the main findings of a baseline survey on ethics management in various government departments in one of the four administrative regions of Fiji. It presents a view of how ethics management systems in developing countries like Fiji are often grid-locked into low road, compliance/rules based ethics management systems in the face of a NPM-driven shift from public administration to market-oriented managerial practices. It highlights existing weaknesses in the ethics management systems in various government departments, indicating a gap between government rhetoric on NPM decentralisation and actual practice at the regional level.
