A study by Princess Nora bint Abdulrahman University has revealed that 58.33 percent of Saudis sampled are aware of government’s efforts to root out corruption in the Kingdom, including the drafting of laws and the establishment of anti-graft agencies.
The study also found that 54 percent of respondents think people’s morals have worsened, while 37.6 percent think they are improving. These were some of the results of the study produced by Fawziya Al-Zubair, associate professor at the university’s social sciences department.
Al-Zubair reportedly said the study was aimed at looking at the role of women in combating corruption in the workplace and instilling principles of morality in their homes.
Those interviewed included Saudi women working at universities and government administrators. There were several experts also interviewed from universities, including associate professors and professors in social sciences, education and Islamic law; and employees from the National Anti-Corruption Commission.
