The objectives of these three mini cases is to analyse the complexity of ethical questions, and to consider the impact of differences in cultural perspectives. Each of the cases is a true case of a dilemma faced by a civil servant. In two of the three situations the dilemma occurred in Canada. These cases represent a hypothetical dilemma, which could be faced by a civil servant. The civil servants in question are all employed by the government of a small, very poor, underdeveloped country.
