  • Affective professional commitment and accounting ethics principles: examining the mediating role of the code of ethics

    Andrijana Rogošić; Ivana Perica (Taylor & Francis Group, 2022-06-01)
    Accounting ethics emerged as a significant socio-economic issue due to the recent frauds that eroded the public trust in financial statements and in accountants who prepare them. Therefore, ethical behaviour in business must be indorsed. This article examines the effect of affective professional commitment of accountants on their perception of importance of accounting ethics principles application with the mediation of the Code of Ethics for Professional Accountants by ISEBA. As in other vocations, some professional accountants have an innate sense of morality but the others should be advised to consult the Code of Ethics. This explains the direct and indirect (with the Code of Ethics as the mediator) relationship between affective professional commitment and the accounting ethics principles application. According to our findings, accountants with higher levels of affective professional commitment are more likely to perceive the importance of accounting ethics principles. Application of the five fundamental accounting ethics principles (integrity, objectivity, professional competence and due care, confidentiality and professional behaviour) should be promoted while consulting the Code of Ethics should be supported in order to decrease unethical behaviour of the professional accountants.
  • The Professional ethics of journalists in the face of governments and politicians: perceptions of professionals and citizens in Spain

    Mauri, Marcel, 1977-; López-Meri, Amparo; Perales-García, Cristina (Universidad de La Laguna, 2020)
    Introduction: This paper analyses the pressures that have been exerted or attempted to be exerted from politics on journalism. Methodology: The study uses a combination of qualitative methodologies, such as focus groups; and quantitative ones, such as surveys to journalists; both methodologies allow knowing how politics influence on journalists and how it can limit media instruments of accountability. Results: this study demonstrates that journalists and citizens share their perception on how political influence is one of the main circumstances affecting the development of good journalism. Discussion/conclusion: In spite of journalists recognizing political and government pressures, the study concludes that they do not give in or feel responsible to political parties or governments.

  • Getting Multiculturalism Right: Deontology and the Concern for Neutrality

    Johnson, Matthew (De Gruyter Open, 2017-05-19)
    In recent years, the notion of pluralism or, as it is often termed, “multiculturalism,” has been subject to critique by a range of public figures on the right of the political spectrum, such as David Cameron, Angela Merkel and Donald Trump. While “multiculturalism” is presented as being antithetical to the traditions of Western societies, it is, in fact, grounded in the same liberal tradition of individual rights as that invoked by those on the right. This article aims to outline the intellectual tradition of deontological or rights-based pluralism, demonstrating that it is an inherent part of the liberal political tradition upon which modern liberal democracies are formed. By tracing ideas derived from John Locke and Immanuel Kant and developed in the modern worldby Will Kymlicka, John Rawls and Chandran Kukathas, this article seeks to enable those beyond the discipline of political philosophy to understand the ways in which rejecting pluralism means rejecting core commitments to equality, neutrality, respect and fairness.
  • Measurement properties of the construct of the code of ethics content: The South African experience

    Mpinganjira, M; Roberts-Lombard, M; Svensson, G; Wood, Greg (AOSIS, 2018-01-01)
    Background: Many organisations develop codes of ethics to help guide business conduct. However, not much is known about the contents of codes of ethics. Objectives: This article aims at investigating the code of ethics content construct and its measurement properties using a sample of firms from South Africa. Method: The study followed a quantitative research approach. The sampling frame consisted of the top 500 companies in South Africa. A structured questionnaire was administered using the telephone survey method. The respondents consisted of company secretaries and heads or managers responsible for ethics in the respective companies. At the end of the data collection period, a total of 222 usable responses were obtained. Results: The findings show that South African top companies have comprehensive codes of ethics as evidenced by the high mean values obtained from all of the content items under investigation. The findings also support the notion that the code of ethics content construct is multidimensional. Seven different dimensions were confirmed in the analysis. The measurement model of the ethics content construct was found to be valid as evidenced by the goodness-of-fit measure and measures of validity. Conclusion: The study shows that the code of ethics construct is multi-dimensional in nature. The framework provided in this study can also be used in developing, evaluating and strengthening existing codes where such need arises. This study contributes to theory on business ethics and presents the first tested measurement model of the code of ethics construct in South Africa.
  • Governing sexual behaviour through humanitarian codes of conduct.

    Matti S (2015)
    Since 2001, there has been a growing consensus that sexual exploitation and abuse of intended beneficiaries by humanitarian workers is a real and widespread problem that requires governance. Codes of conduct have been promoted as a key mechanism for governing the sexual behaviour of humanitarian workers and, ultimately, preventing sexual exploitation and abuse (PSEA). This article presents a systematic study of PSEA codes of conduct adopted by humanitarian non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and how they govern the sexual behaviour of humanitarian workers. It draws on Foucault's analytics of governance and speech act theory to examine the findings of a survey of references to codes of conduct made on the websites of 100 humanitarian NGOs, and to analyse some features of the organisation-specific PSEA codes identified.
  • An Online Experiment Using Case Studies and Scenarios to Teach Preservice Teachers About the Code of Ethics

    Unal, Zafer; Unal, Aslihan (Digital Commons@Georgia Southern, 2017-12-06)
    Preservice teachers are required to learn about code of ethics and principles of professional conduct for the education profession to restrain from inappropriate conducts, unethical behaviors, illegal activities and endangering student safety. However, many preservice teachers find the theories and concepts they learn in university classrooms too abstract to help address code of ethics during their program. Case study method and case writing are two approaches that have been used in teacher education programs to connect theory and practice. This study describes a technology-based case study analysis approach to preparation of preservice teachers for dealing with code of ethics.

    Introduction: Professional ethics in Rehabilitation Sciences is necessary for achieving therapeutic goals. Considering the importance of professional ethics training for rehabilitation students, we aimed to investigate the effects of a professional ethics workshop on improving the students’ ethical knowledge at Ahvaz Faculty of Rehabilitation Sciences, Ahvaz City, Iran. Materials and Methods: This quasi-experimental, cross-sectional study was conducted on all third- and fourth-year students in Audiology, Physiotherapy, Occupational therapy, and Speech therapy and the postgraduate students of the faculty. The two-day workshop was held for 16 hours. The students completed an ethical knowledge assessment test designed by the faculty members before and after the workshop. Results: The data of 206 students (26% male and 74% female), with a mean age of 25.68 years, were analyzed in this study. The Mean±SD scores of the ethical knowledge test before and after the workshop were 4.71±1.84 and 7.02±1.42, respectively. Based on the results, the ethical knowledge of the students increased significantly after the workshop (P<0.001). Improvement of ethical knowledge scores was significantly different between educational levels (P=0.033). Also, the improvement of ethical knowledge score was significantly different among various study fields (P=0.007). Conclusion: Considering the promotion of students’ ethical knowledge through participation in this workshop, it is suggested that an ethical workshop be held upon the entry of all rehabilitation students into the clinical field.

    Tiago Pereira de Souza (12659566); Cibele Gulartt Avendano (12659569); Erissandra Gomes (4450963) (2021-06-01)
    Abstract The new coronavirus arrived in Brazil in February 2020, with a high rate of transmissibility and lethality. In view of this situation, the Ministry of Health issued Ordinance 639/2020, legitimizing the action “Brazil counts on me – health professionals,” to train and register professionals. In order to identify which professions, listed by the Ordinance, have in their Codes of Professional Ethics guidelines for the current situation and analyze the content found, this documentary research has an exploratory, descriptive nature and qualitative and quantitative character, presenting statistical and content analysis. The data were processed using specificity and similarity analysis techniques, using the Iramuteq software. Of the professions analyzed, presented in their code of ethics content related to covid-19: nursing, pharmacy, speech therapy, physiotherapy, psychology, social services and occupational therapy. The existing guidelines have little connection with the text of the committees, indicating deontological insufficiency.
