Ethics lies at the heart of public policy and is relevant to all aspects of the policy-making cycle, including problem definition and identification as well as assessing the available options, outcomes, and evaluation. For this Discussion, you will explore ethical principles and consider how they might promote good practice by policy analysts in the process of doing their analytical work. Additionally, you will consider the ethical principles as you evaluate the ethical dimensions of your colleagues’ group presentations.
