This blog is now closed. It was run in 2012 as part of a project to find out what works best in improving ethical standards within organisations, which has now been published as Standards matter: A review of best practice in promoting good behaviour in public life. All blog posts, by members of the Committee on Standards in Public Life and guests, can still be accessed at the National Archives, and information about the Committee's current work and other publications is available on the Committee on Standards in Public Life website.
