Willingness to Report Corruption
When people view corruption as widespread, are they less willing to fight it? When people see the government's anti-corruption efforts as ineffective, are they prompted to take action themselves instead?
Using data from Transparency International's Global Corruption Barometer, this study is examining anti-corruption activism across 71 countries. It is exploring the factors at individual and national level that affect people’s willingness to get involved in such activism.
What are the implications of these factors for ‘demand-side’ anti-corruption initiatives? Such initiatives seek to help create the socio-political space for citizens to voice their demands for better control over corruption, and they are increasingly common.
