Religiosity and Corruption
The chapter explores the relationship between religion and individual-level tolerance for corruption. To be more specific, the study looks at how religiosity and religious teachings can contribute to individual acceptance or rejection of corruption within society. Building upon the existing literature on corruption and religion, the relationship was assessed with regard to contextual factors and socialization of religious norms and beliefs. The study utilized Wave 4 (2000–2004) of the World Values Survey of 41 countries to test the various hypotheses presented in the chapter about religion and corruption.
