Quick Guide 10: Social norms and corruption
This quick guide by Claudia Baez Camargo, Head of Governance Research, draws on Ms Baez Camargo's decades of research on social norms and their implications for anti-corruption practice. She explores:
- What is a social norm?
- How do social norms drive and perpetuate corrupt behaviour?
- The case of health facilities in East Africa
- How to identify social norms that drive corrupt behaviour
- What are the implications for anti-corruption practice?
- The million-dollar question: how to design anti-corruption interventions to identify social norms that fuel and perpetuate corruption, measure them and tackle them.
The guide draws on a more comprehensive blog published on the website of the Global Integrity Anti-Corruption Evidence (GI-ACE) research programme.
