    • Gardens Youth Congress: proposed code of conduct for Gayco activists

      Gardens Youth Congress (Gardens Youth Congress, 19--?)
      The aim of this Code of Conduct for activists is to provide a set of basic guidelines as to how activists and members of our organization should conduct themselves; both inside and outside the organization. We feel that it is important in 2 respects: (i) It highlights the dangers of negative tendencies and the desirability of good qualities. In this way we hope to improve the quality of activists involvement in our organization by providing them with a set of rules and methods that will allow them to achieve their political goals easily and effectively. (ii) Activists represent not only their own organization but the cause of the national democratic struggle in general. As such, the way we behave and conduct ourselves reflects on this cause. Activists must therefore be seen to act in a comradely, disciplined and democratic fashion. It must be pointed out that although this code of conduct applies to all members of our organization it is obviously more relevant to those activists who play an active role in the decision making process, regularly come to meetings and volunteer for the different tasks at hand.

    • Gender and Professional Ethics in the IT Industry

      A. Panteli, J. Stack, H. Ramsay (1999-10)
      Abstract: In this paper, we discuss the ethical responsibility of the Information Technology (IT) industry towards its female workforce. Although the growing IT industry experiences skills shortages, there is a declining trend in the representation of women. The paper presents evidence that the IT industry is not gender-neutral and that it does little to promote or retain its female workforce. We urge that professional codes of ethics in IT should be revised to take into account the diverse needs of its staff.

    • Gender Equality in the Codes of Conduct of Multinational Companies

      Holmqvist, Anna (2004)
      "The purpose of this thesis has been to describe whether aspects on gender equality is addressed in the codes of conduct of multinational corporations. A code of conduct is a document where principles on corporate social responsibility are formulated. I have focused on four Swedish multinational corporations and their codes of conduct. The companies are Electrolux, Ericsson, Skanska and Volvo. In order to examine how gender equality is addressed in the codes of conduct of these companies, I have studied the structure and content of the codes of conduct and conducted a questionnaire that representatives of the companies have answered. Causes behind formulating codes of conduct, the position and status of these documents as well as how they are communicated is discussed and comparisons are made to the so-called equal opportunities plan. In this thesis I show that aspects on gender equality is only formulated by one company in its code of conduct. In all four companies gender is mentioned in relation to a non-discrimination principle, being one among many causes for discrimination that the companies do not accep t. Aspects on gender equality in terms of equality in working life between women and men are however only expressed in one code of conduct."

    • Gender, power and corporate social responsibility: Central American Women Workers and Codes of Conduct

      University of Bristol; Prieto-Carron, Marina (2006)
      This thesis describes an inquiry into why corporate codes of conduct and in general Corporate Social Responsibility is not making a difference to women workers in supply lains in developing countries. Codes of conduct can be defined as policy tools that set up 'voluntary' social standards for multinational companies in their international operations.

    • Gendered risks, poverty, and vulnerability

      Arif, Sirojuddin; Syukri, Muhammad; Holmes, Rebecca; Febriany, Vita (The SMERU Institute, 2012-01)
      This study investigates gender dimensions of risks and the extent to which such risks are addressed in Indonesia’s social protection policy. It is structured around the following four areas: understanding the diversity of gendered economic and social risks; a gender analysis of social protection policy and design; effects of social protection on gender equality, food security and poverty/vulnerability reduction at the community, household and individual level; and implications for future policy and programming to improve social protection effectiveness. The study employs a mix of qualitative and quantitative methods, including desk review, key informant interviews, a household questionnaire, focus group discussion and life histories. Based on data collected in two research sites, Tapanuli Tengah of North Sumatra province and Timor Tengah Selatan of East Nusa Tenggara province, the study found that, despite its prevalence, attention to gender inequality has been minimal in social protection policy. This owes particularly to lack of awareness of and commitment to gender issues among policymakers. In food security in particular, gender insensitivity results fundamentally from program design, which does not take into account women’s specific vulnerabilities in food access. The program has relatively equal impacts on men and women but has no significant impacts in relation to reducing specific risks and vulnerabilities facing women.

    • General level of compliance on internal auditors’ code of ethics in five Malaysian listed government linked companies / Noor Furzanne Alias

      Alias, Noor Furzanne (2014)
      The purpose of this applied research is primarily to identify the level of compliance of internal auditors in five selected listed Government Linked Companies (GLCs) to the Institute of Internal Auditors (I I A) Code of Ethics in detecting unethical behaviour and
 their awareness on unethical practices in the organisation they are working in. Corporate scandals involved GLCs in Malaysia have increased the public queries on the competencies of internal auditors in reviewing the business process of the organisation.
 Hence, the research will try to identify whether the internal auditors in selected listed GLCs are competent in conducting audit engagement. The researcher also attempted identify whether the internal auditors in selected listed GLCs are aware on unethical
 practices/behaviour in the organisation they are working in. The results of the research shows that there is some evidence to indicate that internal auditors of the five selected listed GLCs are aware about the unethical practices in their organisation. The conclusion of this study shows that the internal auditors in five elected listed GLCs hold high level of compliance to the HA’s Code of Ethics in conducting audit engagement and identifying unethical practices. However, the findings suggest that the internal auditors
 should attend training and courses organised by the IIA, MACC and ACFE to increase and improve their knowledge on ethics and fraud in corporate sector
    • General Senior Secondary Education Financing in Indonesia

      Priyono, Edy; Febriany, Vita (The SMERU Institute, 2013-09)
      "This report examines the policy options and financial implications of the expansion of senior secondary education in Indonesia. The government wishes to increase the gross enrolment rate from 70% to 85% by 2014 and aims for universal 12-year education by 2019. The approach adopted has been to: analyse current costs and funding arrangements through fieldwork and a review of secondary sources; consider the financing implications of achieving a set of minimum standards; review the current government funding provision; and examine a range of policy options for the expansion of senior secondary enrolments. The current funding of government senior secondary education is complex and varies throughout the country. It involves different levels of government providing financial support for infrastructure, salaries and operational costs. A common feature of the senior secondary sub-sector is its dependence on parental contributions. This has implications for school quality and for equity. The government’s policy of designating some schools as ‘international standard secondary schools’ (RSBI) has inadvertently adversely affected equity. The study found considerable variation in the levels of cost and the amounts of available revenue among state senior secondary schools (SMA), with the RSBI being far better resourced than the rest. Salaries of government service teachers (PNS) are the responsibility of government. Those of teachers without PNS status, who are numerous in some schools, have to be paid for from other sources and almost invariably these costs fall on parents. The burden on parents comes in various forms. There are direct charges for fees and registration books and uniforms and there are indirect costs of transport and meals. There are also high opportunity costs of sending children to senior secondary school to set against the perceived returns of this level of schooling."
    • Generational similarities and differences in researchers' professional ethics: an empirical comparison

      Prpić, Katarina (Springer; Akademiai Kiado, 2005)
      This study, based on two empirical investigations undertaken in Croatia on samples of 320 eminent and 840 young researchers, shows a comparison between the professional values/norms of these groups (normative level of research ethics), as well as a comparison (of perceptions) about the frequency of ethically questionable and unacceptable behaviour of researchers in Croatian research institutions (behavioural level of ethos). Science ethics includes a core of cognitive and social standards about which there is relatively high consensus in both groups of researchers. Their cognitive standards correspond to epistemological realism with an accent on objective, reliable, measurable and precise new knowledge. Their basic social values include the broadest social responsibility, responsibility towards colleagues and students, and professionality in relation with funders and/or clients. Thus, research ethos is a combination of traditional cognitive norms and new socially-engaged values. However, research ethics is not a static or homogeneous set of professional values and norms. Young scientists value cognitive norms relating to basic research lower, but rank some cognitive standards more closely linked with applied empirical research higher. Considering the social dimensions of research ethics, young researchers rate traditional academic values of collegiality, communality and autonomy less important than do eminent scientists, but they hold professionalism and establishing research networks more important. As expected, cognitive and social values and norms are not strictly followed on the level of professional practice. In their everyday professional life eminent and young researchers experience particular questionable research practices that could harm research work and results, and impair collegial relations in science, more often than they encounter breaking social norms that harm or even threaten participants in and users of scientific professional work.
