We are told the ethic of public service has been eroded in the UK, leading to the demise of civitas, and the dwindling of a willing workforce for the public services. What motivates the public servant? And what exactly have we lost? Shouldn't we welcome a work market where people are paid - and valued - for their labour, and not expected to work out of good will? Can public services survive in a culture which focuses on individual fulfilment? Speakers: Charlie Leadbeater, author of Civic Spirit: The Big Idea for a New Political Era; Bill Jordan, author of Social Work and the Third Way: Tough Love and Social Policy; Heather Wakefield, national secretary at Unison; David Bell, psychoanalyst and psychiatrist at the Tavistock, editor of Psychoanalysis and Culture; Ruth Lea, Director, the Centre for Policy Studies.
