MAA executives meeting with Ken Phillips
June 16, 2018, a friendly meeting and discussion with Ken Phillips took place on the topic “Ethics in public service and in public organizations – the basis for the development of the state and society” as one of the developers of the Code of Ethics of the Municipality of Seattle.
As a result of the discussion, they came to the conclusion that one of the main causes of extended and multifaceted corruption in the post-Soviet space is leveling and distortion of ethical norms.
The ethical norms inherited by the Ukrainian society from the Soviet past are significantly different from the ethical norms with regard to the corruption components and actions inherent in modern European society.
