How do we ensure ethics and integrity in local government, in particular focusing on the role of councillors and senior management? This webinar engages with this question and locates it in (1) the applicable legal framework, (2) ongoing debates about professionalisation of local government and (3) observations about the practice of integrity management in municipalities. The speakers will share recent research, tools and insights into the topic.
