Behavioural influences on attitudes towards petty corruption: a study of social norms, automatic thinking and mental models in Uganda
The UK Department for International Development (DFID), through its East Africa Research Fund (EARF), commissioned the Basel Institute on Governance to conduct the research project “Corruption, Social Norms and Behaviours in East Africa” aiming at shedding light into those “[behavioural] factors that influence the propensity for poor people to engage in, resist and report ‘corrupt transactions’” in three East African countries, namely, Rwanda, Tanzania and Uganda.
This report presents the main findings from the field research activities for the case of Uganda, which focused on the health and education sectors.
