AbstractThis book is an affirmation: Yes, ethics in politics is possible – and it pays off. It is not a naive dream. The author chooses a pragmatic approach and tests whether value orientation can make a difference in politics and how. He presents practical cases and outlines criteria for dealing with dilemmas. He singles out four fundamental ethical values to achieve: limitation of power, effectiveness, accountability and justice.
