''Comment on “The Spreading of Disorder”''
( 2010, Vol. 30 No.1 )
Keizer et al. (2008) explore disorderly settings linked to a process of spreading norm violation. The results show that if norm violating behavior becomes more common, it negatively affects compliance in other areas. This comment addresses problematic areas in their studies and provides new empirical evidence of a cross-norm inhibition effect that deals with such criticism.
Keywords: disorder, broken windows theory, pro-social behavior, contagion effect.
