Corruption, social norms, artificial intelligence, behavioral ethics.
The project “Corruption and Anti-Corruption in Empirical Research: Critical Reflections on Concepts, Data and Methods” aims to address the challenge of sparse communication between the disciplines and strengthen the advantages of interdisciplinary approaches in corruption research, by facilitating an interdisciplinary Handbook on corruption and anti-corruption in empirical research with critical reflections on (a) the link between conceptualizations and methodological approaches in studying corruption, (b) limitations and benefits of particular data and methods for corruption research and (c) ethical and security-related issues in applying different methods of researching corruption.
