Education for Justice Initiative

The E4J initiative leverages an understanding of behavioural science in seeking to prevent crime and promote a culture of lawfulness through education activities. Behavioural interventions are at the core of the initiative as children and youth are empowered to facilitate change and to stand up when seeing crime, including corruption. This initiative includes for example discussion of behaviour change at the individual level and explores “rationalisation” of unethical behaviour and dishonesty to limit bad behaviour. 93 academics in 50 countries have used these resources to teach approximately 15,000 students and support behavioural change by showcasing how individual actions can make a difference. E4J has also contributed to a behavioural change and impact study to assess how learning about ethics and integrity in the classroom has contributed to behavioural change in students.
