Focussing on systems and institutions, the human dimension of integrity is often overlooked. Yet, integrity depends on people’s choices.
A growing body of evidence has shed light on how corrupt networks function, how individuals are tempted to profit from corruption and how they react to the incentives provided by anti-corruption measures.
Behavioural research provides a wealth of insights for policy makers to develop innovative and well-targeted integrity policies.
"If a business offered a job to a politician in exchange for political favours, do you think the politician would accept?” – asking the right questions can generate valuable evidence for integrity.
This collection of over 100 case studies shows how behavioural insights are being applied to public policies around the world.
When public decisions over policies are directed away from the public interest, it exacerbates inequalities and undermine democratic values, economic growth and trust in government.
