As twenty-first century public sector managers face the brave new world of global networks, NPM techniques, and virtual networked organizations, twentieth-century moral and ethical approaches to decision making appear inadequate and potentially troublesome. The editors of this special PAMIJ symposium have selected several articles from the e-journal Global Virtue Ethics Review that highlight the ethical difficulties present in this new world, and offer opportunities and palliatives available for public sector managers as they enter this new and uncharted venue.
