Guidelines for citizen input on code of ethics for public servants

image_pdfimage_print

The Code of Ethics for Public Servants is a draft Presidential Order that recognizes the idea that public confidence in government is essential, and aims to support this idea by setting standards for public servants to make sure government transactions and decisions are made fairly and honestly.

When its provisions are followed, the code should ensure that the personal and financial interests of public servants do not present a real or apparent conflict of interest with their responsibilities to serve the public. Also, the Code should protect the public and fellow civil servants from personal misbehavior by any official.

Civil society organizations across Rwanda have the opportunity to provide input on the draft code. This short document presents some questions that might be used to help civil society representatives identify ideas to improve the current draft code.
