dc.description.abstractThe author's goal in doing this research is to expose the triggers of corruption. Several institutions assess corruption using indices and barometers, however, this does not provide a comprehensive resource for reducing it. Corruption, on the other hand, is a major issue for the long-term viability of international development and economic globalisation. With corruption becoming more prevalent across the world, the relevance of this research rises to raise awareness and emphasise who the perpetrators or victims of corruption are, what triggers corruption and when it occurs, where triggers arise, and what causes corruption. The author researched the origins of corruption, measured in place and analysed the multiple barometric that were tested. Through a review of the literature, the study explores five sources of corruption: psychology, sociology, the environment, the internet and demography. The study found that emotional intelligence shapes human behaviour and is impacted by the individual's surroundings. This will affect the individual's judgments and moral agency to sustain particular actions and behaviours. According to the findings of the SPSS study, the following five factors lead to the onset of corruption: "Positive Emotions", "Environment", "Causes", "Negative Emotions" and "Economic." A variety of factors play a part in this including the society and individuals involved, peer pressure and the ruling power. When performing a theme review using Nvivo, the author illustrates how these factors intersect both in quantitative research and in qualitative analysis. Furthermore, while fighting corruption is obvious and necessary, one must first understand it before taking action. The goal of this study is to identify the root cause of corruption. This will allow future researchers to better understand why certain repercussions of illegal acts recur, what types of human interactions trigger these triggers and how to avoid them.en_GB
