Reasons for developing the codes

Reasons for developing the Codes

Self-preservation

Because if we don’t limit ourselves, the authorities will do that

or

We will be identified with pathology

Promotion

Because this way we can promote ourselves

or

We can proof we’re better than others.


Reasons for not developing the codes

Reasons fornot developing the Codes

Ineffectiveness

  • Non-ethical activities are more effective

    or

  • Because nobody checks us (fare dodger)

    Lack of clear priorities

  • Because it is not settled what is more important

    or

  • We don’t know what we really want


Polish experiences

POLISH EXPERIENCES

Card of Principles for Non-Governmental Organizations 1996

Decalogue of NGO 1997

Card of Principles for Organizations which Monitor Activity of Public Administration 2001

Ethical Card of Ecological NGO’s

2001/2002


Polish challenges

POLISH CHALLENGES

What can be done to empower the Card (to be effective or ennobling)?

What can be done to make the Card unequivocal and not full of platitudes?

What can be done to assure that the Card is observed?

What can be done in the situation where one is not obeying the Card?


Po lish challenges

POLISHCHALLENGES

In contrast to the countries with strong democratical roots, where standards are coming more from social acceptance and self-organizational tradition, in Poland Card of Principles or Ethical Card would be strongly connected with the process of III sector institutionalization. What is more, this process will be satisfactory enough if organizations agree on basic standards( both ethical and operational), which are essential for the III sector (and its particular branches) in our conditions.
