“Norm violation” behaviour: modelling the social dynamics of Corruption.
The existence of social norms whose violation is socially agreed to deserve some punishment, is perhaps one of the most widespread features across the history of human cultures and societies. A ubiquitous type of social-norm violating behavior is corruption. In this talk, I will introduce a compartmental, 3-state population flow model of corruption. I will start from the assumptions of the model and how we formulate it. After developing its mean field theory, I will analyse the observable macroscopic states of the population dynamics in detail.
