New Chatham House research examines how corruption functions as a collective practice and identifies the complex social characteristics, shared beliefs and expectations and informal rules that drive and sustain corrupt practices. The latest paper of the Social Norms and Accountable Governance project analyses data from a national household survey in Nigeria that explored the role of religious reasons in the acceptability of corruption and assessed for expectations and beliefs about the diversion of public funds for the provision of religious goods, such as the construction of churches or mosques. At this event, which launches the new Chatham House Africa Programme publication, Collective Action on Corruption in Nigeria: The Role of Religion , speakers will present their research findings and implications for faith-based anti-corruption interventions. This webinar will also be broadcast live on the Africa Programme Facebook page.
