About the Compliance Lab

The UCI Compliance Lab connects the research and practice on legal compliance in order to identify effective and efficient ways to shape individual and organizational behavior.

Our Work

  • Measuring compliance
  • Individual variation in compliance responses (e.g. personality and age)
  • Organizational culture and compliance
  • Cross-national comparison
  • Micro-processes in enforcement and compliance management
