    Asian Banking School
    This is a 1-day foundation programme which will comprise short input sessions supported by practical work. For each part of the programme, the facilitator will talk through the general principles, focussing on their practical importance. After each input session, a case study (or possibly two shorter case studies) will be used, and participants will be invited to discuss the ethical issues arising from them.

    As the programme is introductory, it should concentrate on ethical issues that might commonly be encountered at operational level, such as integrity, confidentiality, applying minimum standards of accepted behaviour, whistle blowing and so on.
