Behavioral Approaches to Anti-Corruption: An Integrity Turn?
Organised by the Interdisciplinary Corruption Research Network (ICRN)
Beyond compliance and control, the anti-corruption movement is increasingly focusing its attention on the intrinsic motivations of individuals involved in corruption practices.This workshop aims to present recent findings from the Interdisciplinary Corruption Research Network (ICRN) which reflect this “integrity turn” of anti-corruption, with a central focus on first aggregate results of a meta-analysis on the existing collection of bribery games – providing a practical decision guideline to facilitate the choice and use of corruption games for academics and practitioners alike. This is a chance to bring together behavioral researchers, focusing on micro-level decision-making, with political scientists, interested in the institutional and social dimensions of (anti)corruption, practitioners as well as academics from all disciplines to exchange about recent behavioral insights into corruption, confront them with the latest research on public integrity and reflect on how they can be used for research outside the lab as well as for policy design.

Ignoring Social Norms Can Undermine Integrity Promotion
Organised by Tufts University
This interactive, fast-paced session will explore the power of social norms in sustaining corrupt patterns of behaviour and undermining efforts to promote integrity. Intended for those actively working on integrity/anti-corruption programming,this discussion draws from the latest findings of the Corruption, Justice and Legitimacy project at The Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy. The discussion will:
· offer a brief conceptual framework for social norms, discuss how they are different from other factors that affect people’s decisions, and why the distinction is important for practitioners
· share findings and facilitate discussion on how ignoring or misunderstanding social norms can unintentionally do harm, i.e. exacerbate corruption
· demonstrate a way to test programming ideas for their potential harm
The session will include practical examples drawn from our work across sub-Saharan Africa and provide the opportunity for discussion through the use of causal loop mapping.

Rewriting the Script on Corruption through Mindset Shifting
Organised by Accountability Lab
Integrity Idol is a campaign run by citizens in search of honest government officials. Beginning in Nepal in 2014 and set to reach nine countries across Sub-Saharan Africa, South Asia and Latin America by end of 2020, Integrity Idol celebrates individuals that serve the public good. Seeking to ‘name and fame’ do-gooders in government rather than ‘name and shame’ corrupt officials, the campaign flips the script on corruption and creates role models to support a new generation of more accountable civil servants. Receiving such an award comes with recognition as well as responsibility, important to consider in the context of challenging changing social norms that limit progress on greater public sector accountability.
