Project Details


The project gathers researchers from universities in the United Kingdom (UCL, Nottingham), Nepal (Tribhuvan Kathmandu), and Bangladesh (Dhaka). It designs and implements state-of-the-art ethics training courses with civil servants in Nepal and Bangladesh and evaluates their effects on corruption and (un)ethical behaviour in a field experiment. The research will provide insights for those who seek innovative tools to reduce corruption in the public sector and promote ethical behaviour among civil servants. The project is funded by Department for International Development (DFID) and Global Integrity.
