Behaviour Change Knowledge Centre

The Behaviour Change Knowledge Centre

The Behaviour Change Knowledge Centre is a virtual platform on which the body of knowledge on behaviour change for corruption control, including explainers, working papers, newsletters, video skits and blog posts, is curated. These are products from research and reviews by NISER authors, implemented through a MacArthur Foundation Grant Project.

The knowledge content of the BCKC is rooted in interdisciplinary collaborations from the fields of public policy, political science, law, human geography, economics, technology management, statistics, and psychology.

These will be designed as short-term courses for different target audience groups including the public sector, academia, the research community, civil society groups and the private sector.
