Overview

Over the past five years, it has been noted by industry and academics that the cultural environment of an organisation plays a large part in promoting or minimising incidents of fraud, bribery and corruption. The importance of this topic is that there is little empirical evidence to support this view, yet substantial anecdotal evidence in cases such as Enron, HIH Insurance, ING and the Queensland Health (Barlow) fraud.

This research topic would assist in addressing this gap.
