Corruption at the Grassroots-level - Between Temptation, Norms, and Culture

The macroeconomic correlates of corruption are well understood and well researched. Empirical evidence on the micro level, however, is still far from being exhaustive. In particular, it is not clear to what extent empirical results of interesting case studies - both experimental and microeconometric - are specific to the cultural or normative context in which they have been derived. In how far are social norms in conflict with corrupt temptations and how does this context-specific conflict ...

Civil Society Organizations Fighting Corruption: Theory and Practice Workshop

The fight against corruption has figured high on the agenda of the international community since the mid 1990s resulting in the adoption of regional and international conventions. Civil society is regarded by many of these conventions as an important tool in this fight. While Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) have an obvious role in raising awareness, their more direct involvement in fighting corruption has proved vexing. For example, following the Third Conference of the States Parties to the ...
