Despite the increasing number of anti-corruption campaigns, corruption is still a considerable challenge in many countries around the globe. During this session Dr. Simonyan will examine the “behavior behind bribes,” connecting the links between personal characteristics and the propensity to accept corruption as part of one’s social and business environment. Included as part of his discussion, Dr. Simonyan will explore how rationalization is linked to the attitude of a person towards corrupt practices including an analysis of factors including social norms and personal wealth.
