Abstract "Institutional hard dimensions of public service ethics mainly focus on law, internal checks and instructions. Individual hard aspects refer to obedience, whistle blowing and sometimes even to the exit strategies of public servants. In contrast, soft issues address e. g. public private partnerships, organizational culture and intrinsic motivation of public servants. The main argument is that hard and soft aspects are dependent upon each other: Hard means require soft factors to avoid strictness and frustration of public servants. And soft issues are dependent upon hard ones to gain stability, clarity and calculability." (author's abstract)
