This paper introduces the Corruption Emergence Model (CE Model), an artificial society-based simulation model of the corruption emergence. The model considers the attitude change as a generative mechanism. The attitude changes are described and simulated with a set of self-organizing processes which feed on each other in a cross-recurrent setup. The simulation model investigates the connection between the dynamics of the processes describing the social trust, the cognitive dissonance of the agents, their honesty, fairness and responsibility degrees and the emergence of corruption in the artificial society.
Keywords: artificial society, corruption emergence, attitude change, self-organizing processes
