    “Corruption, Culture and Moral Psychology: From Research to Policy”
    17th-27th October 2017

MESSAGE FROM CHAIRPERSON

 

Dear colleagues,

The annual global report conducted by Tranparency International has indicated that corruption becoming an epidemic in many countries. What causes the otherwise “good” people to do bad things? While most people refer corruption as a competitive strategy to attain personal goal, recent studies suggest that social context also play significant role in enforcing corruption culture. Thus, there seems to be an interplay between micro and macro determinants that we need to take into account to understand the underlying mechanism of corruptive behaviour in human.

Providing adequate basis of knowledge on understanding the conceptualization of corruption from the socio-cultural (macro) and psychological perspectives (micro) is one of the main objectives of our International Short Course on Psychology “Corruption, Culture, and Moral Psychology: From Research to Policy”. In addition to that participants will also be introduced sound and rigorous research methodology, both using quantitative and qualitatice approach, to design and to implement any initiative that is targeted to eradicate corruption.

Our International Short Course on Psychology “Corruption, Culture, and Moral Psychology: From Research to Policy” is held as a joint effort between Faculty of Psychology, Faculty of Cultural Sciences, and Faculty of Economics and Business, Universitas Gadjah Mada, Yogyakarta, Indonesia. Our programs are designed to take the participants to scrutinize the phenomenon of corruption from multi-perspectives. Hence, we combine various activities to meet that end, i.e. seminars, workshops, mini research, case study, lab-setting experimental work, fieldwork, and policy brief writing.

At the end of the program, we are also going to launch the Interdiciplinary Corruption Research Network (ICRN) Chapter Indonesia as a means to bring together Indonesian scholars who have been conducting corruption research and connect them to a community worldwide.

We would like to extend our warm invitation to all colleagues, students, young scholars, and practitioners to join us in this event.
