This session is organised by the Basel Institute on Governance, Knowledge Partner of the virtual 2021 OECD Global Anti-Corruption & Integrity Forum. The language of this session is English.
Health workers and administrators are often subject to intense social pressures to ignore official rules and procedure, even more so during times of crisis. These pressures are likely to be systematic because they are rooted in social norms: shared understandings about actions that are appropriate in society. Such norms provide the unwritten rules of behaviour and in times of crisis the pressure to follow them can sharpen – overriding not just formal rules but even personal attitudes and beliefs. A similar argument applies to informal practices that are enrooted in the everyday routines and that become entrenched because they are functional. The presenters in this panel will discuss how practitioners may tailor approaches to strengthen integrity during an emergency response to counter recurrent social norms and informal practices.
