Влияние социального капитала на восприятие коррупции в группе

Рассадовская А. В.

In this paper, we examine the correlation between corruption perceptions of a particular person and the person’s surrounding people. The relevance of this task is obvious in the context of the great attention paid to the fight against corruption in modern society, and also due to the fact that the available scholarly literature mostly discusses the behavior of bribetakers and their economic motives in deciding on a bribe, while the motivation of the bribe-giver, including the attitude towards corruption in society is also of great importance. An assumption was made about the mutual influence of opinions within a social group, a method was proposed to assess the degree of this influence using the characteristics of the social network graph. An analysis was carried out involving six survey groups of students from four Russian universities. It included primary data analysis and application of the proposed method for assessing the degree of influence. Our results show that there is a significant influence of the surrounding people on the person’s corruption perceptions, which opens the question of finding the qualities in the groups that produce different levels of influence.
