The main focus of my dissertation project was the underlying causes of corrupt practices - such as bribe-giving and unofficial payments - and perceived levels of corruption in education sectors across Europe. The objective of this study was to account for both ‘macro’ characteristics of educational systems between countries, as well as for ‘micro’ cultural and social characteristics of individuals. The causes of corruption in the education sector across Europe are assessed using a multi-level analytical framework with harmonized corruption indicators.
