Commonwealth Case Studies

image of Key Principles of Public Sector Reforms

Public sector reforms continue to be an integral part of governments' efforts to modernise the public service, making it more citizen-centric and responsive. Public service reforms that improve accountability and participation, reduce corruption and improve rulefollowing behaviour to reduce the discretion of officials, are particularly crucial. Key Principles of Public Sector Reforms contains a variety of case studies that member countries across the Commonwealth can replicate, adapt or customise according to needs and local contexts. Country case studies from Cameroon, Ghana, Grenada, India, Kenya, Rwanda, St Vincent and the Grenadines, Saint Lucia, Seychelles, South Africa, Tanzania and Trinidad and Tobago speak to the policy reforms, strategies and methodologies deployed to support national priorities, especially through greater policy coherence, for sustained development and growth.

Principle 7: A Code of Conduct for Public Sector Ethics

Codes of conduct provide guidance on ethical conduct and regulate the behaviour of public servants and other public officials. The public service provides a critical service to the public, such as formulation and implementation of public policies. Public servants exercise authority and manage public resources, and their actions therefore directly affect the public and the confidence the public has in the government.
