This module introduces MPM students to view ethics, power, and accountability not merely as concepts but as dynamic and interrelated themes implicitly and overtly being practiced in government.

As such, it engages students to draw on their own relevant experiences and use these concepts as lens in abstracting their own understanding of these themes. This is in light of related literature – both classical and contemporary – as proposed/reflected upon by various authors.

Ultimately, it challenges students to learn critical and creative thinking skills in integrating theory and practice; and apply these in their own local – both socio-cultural and politico-economic – contexts.
