Summary This chapter focussed on ethics and, more specifically, an ethical perspective on IPD and alliancing. We first introduced the complexity of many public-sector infrastructure projects, particularly recent megaprojects in the UK and other substantial projects elsewhere in the world. That prompted three questions to frame the chapter by addressing each of these in turn. We also introduced the reader to a quote from one of our research studies that resonated throughout the chapter. The value of taking an ethics perspective and its relevance and links to other chapters in this book has been made explicit so that readers who are interested in expanding their understanding of the fit may do so. We did not go into the theory of ethics from a PM perspective in great depth because there are other resources that do so more comprehensively than is practicable in this chapter. We recommend the book by Jónasson and Ingason (2013b) because it is recent, very well written and has some useful vignettes and case-study exercises. We also recommend readers to follow up on several of the sources cited in this chapter and listed in the reference section below.
