UC San Diego Conference on Ethics, Transparency and Civility - Part One: Ethics

11/10/2014; 86 minutes

Has ethical behavior – integrity in public officials' conduct and pursuit of the common good – declined in American public life? Examples of "no moral compass" abound, but is that the norm? UC San Diego's Steve Erie presides over a refreshingly candid panel of elected officials and others who explore the dilemmas they face as they attempt to do the people's business in Congress and the California State Assembly. The panelists include U.S. Congressional Representatives Scott Peters and Susan Davis; California Assembly Minority Leader Kristin Olsen; Dan Howle, CEO of the Independent Voter Project; Stephen Ferruolo, Dean of the University of San Diego School of Law; philanthropist Robert Price and Avril Prakash, president of SOVAC at UC San Diego.
Recorded on 10/16/2014.
