Ethics Institute of South Africa

South Africans all agree that we need to create a more moral society, but we rely too heavily on law alone to produce one. This emphasis on law and legality creates a gap that is being exploited by unscrupulous people in both the public and private sectors to act corruptly. At the root of the problem, argues Professor Deon Rossouw, CEO of the Ethics Institute of South Africa (EthicsSA), is the general tendency to assume that law and morality are basically the same thing.
