An Inquiry into Corruption Norms: Survey Data of GRIPS Alumni
Corruption norms are standards shared by members of a society regarding moral attitudes of approval and disapproval toward corruption. Finding out how to deal with corruption norms is a challenge for state building and economic development. This study attempts to deepen our understanding of two aspects of corruption norms. The first is about how precisely the norms specify the distinction between acceptable and unacceptable behaviors. The second is about the empirical validity of the view that corruption norms keep changing and can be changed. This study attempts to offer new insights into these issues by using survey data of alumni of the National Graduate Institute for Policy Studies (GRIPS), Japan, who are mostly government officials in 58 countries.
