In this public lecture, Professor Robert Klitgaard asks what does it mean to “build integrity”? How might it be done in practice? What research might we do to help? Professor Klitgaard explores recent examples of progress, with an emphasis on “how to.” Among the principles that seem to emerge, focusing on behavior may be more promising than focusing on attitudes.
