The Behavioural Insights and Ethical Norms in Justice

Administration Research Study (the Study) is an interdisciplinary study of corruption in the Nigerian judicial sector. The Study is an initiative of the Juritrust Centre for Socio-Legal Research and Documentation (the Juritrust Centre). The Study is part of a larger project on the implementation of the ACJA and Anti-corruption laws by the Juritrust Centre with the support of the MacArthur Foundation. The Study duly acknowledges that the anti-corruption fight needs reform champions in critical sectors, including the Judiciary. However, it emphasizes the importance of ethics and demands behavioural change among actors and players in the judicial sector. It also acknowledges the shortcomings of technical legal training that focuses exclusively on legal frameworks and ignores the social and ethical milieu in which judicial activity exists. The Study is thus adopting behavioural change strategies and ethics to address the problem of corruption in the judicial sector. The following is an overview of the study. A detailed report of the study will be published by the Centre later this year.
