The Economics of Corruption 2022: Activating intrinsic forces against corruption
The 2022 Workshop "The Economics of Corruption" provides graduate and PhD-students with experimental, behavioral and institutional tools for doing research on corruption and good governance.
Recent years have seen growing skepticism towards standard methods in fighting corruption. Control and compliance have induced an ever increasing administrative burden and draw attention away from an intrinsic motivation to obey rules and respect public interest. Novel methods of anticorruption focus on detecting such intrinsic drivers that might motivate ethical government. Participants learn about latest experimental and behavioral research by help of lectures, games, simulations, presentations and case studies. They are confronted with various methods for containing corruption, particularly based on the United Nations Convention Against Corruption (UNCAC), and critically analyse their effectiveness. They are guided towards developing their own experimental design and work in groups to implement it.
PhD-students are invited to present their research (15 min. presentation + 5 min. discussion).
There are no tuition fees. The course is directed towards PhD and Master students in the social sciences (economics, business administration, psychology, political science, law, sociology) who apply experimental methods in their respective fields and would like to exchange ideas across disciplinary boundaries.
