Social studies in the science of human behavior confirm that working to achieve a change in human behavior requires many efforts and the use of different methods and that the most prominent of these methods is through behavioral changes.
According to transparency international, ” anti-corruption strategies have been based on an understanding that corrupt people were rational beings, making rational decisions when they decide to engage in corruption. As a result, the rationale was to make corruption as inconvenient as possible. However, contrary to this assumption, social psychology and behavioral economics demonstrate that human decision making is not always rational. Mental shortcuts and intuition play an important role in shaping the behavior surrounding corruption. This realization has opened up a new terrain to think of anti-corruption based on how people act towards and engage in corruption. That requires first an understanding of the psychology of corruption and, second, a holistic approach to influence both the mind and the environment in which the individual makes decisions. Awards, as a form of incentive, are among some of the tools that can be considered when designing strategies meant to help curb corruption through behavioral changes.
