Mercy in Public Administration
Author: WILLA BRUCE
Published in GVER, Vol. 4 No. 1
This paper suggests that mercy is a virtue in the classical secular sense as well as the religious. It offers mercy as a virtue important for those in the practice of public administration and introduces mercy as a way that public employees can serve their clients and one another. It further suggests that those who act with mercy will more completely carry out their role as representative citizens who act on behalf of all.
