Fair and Equitable Public Management

Fair and Equitable Public Management is one “side of the coin” of modern government management; the other side is the fight against corruption. Every specific progress generating a fairer and more equitable public management takes space away from corruption and illegality and, therefore, it is inserted into virtuous cycles that increase the satisfaction of the citizens, their access to rights, their active participation in the administration of their communities, their desire to participate in building a better society in the territories where they move.
