Laboratory experiments on corruption

Author

Abstract

Corrupt activities are seldom observed directly. Naturally, everyone involved in such behaviour has good reasons to remain silent. Much progress has been made in cross-country econometric analysis on the determinants of corruption. Still, if one wishes to have a closer look at corrupt behaviour, problems arise, because the subject of study is carefully hidden from the researcher's eyes. To tackle the problem, researchers have recently begun to use an alternative approach to gather empirical data on the issue. In laboratory experiments it is possible to create analogous, although stylized, environments that mimic real-life corruption scenarios and to obtain data in a controlled manner. This chapter surveys that research.
