The role of policy officers

Peter Bridgman discusses the difficulties faced by policy officers, expected to provide 'frank and fearless' advice and argues there are two main ethical questions in policy work (or making or advising on decisions):

• is it the right thing to do? and

• whose interests are affected by it?

Each question might assist in framing policy advice that is enhanced by its asking.
