The Moral Heart of Public Service

Jessica Kingsley Publishers
This collection of essays and lectures, cultivated by the Westminster Abbey Institute, explores why core ethical values such as peace, community and virtue are important in contemporary public life, and how public servants can use them to re-inject the essential goodness into their work.
Claire Foster-Gilbert has published four books and numerous articles, and has extensive media experience. She was formerly an expert in medical ethics, environmental ethics, on learning ethics through storytelling, and she created an Institute at St Paul’s Cathedral for ethics in finance before founding the Westminster Abbey Institute for ethics in public life. She has been called a “quiet public intellectual”.
