The present paper focused on determining the cultural contexts of corruption in Pakistan with special reference to administrative norms. Out of four public sector organisations, a total of 384 respondents were selected. Data were collected via a questionnaire based on the Likert scale. In order to evaluate and establish associations between variables, statistical analysis using the Chi-square test was used. Statistical analysis showed that the perception of corruption was significantly related to a specific variable on the bivariate level. A number of policy recommendations and proposals are based upon comprehensive research findings: redefinition and revitalization of religious and moral values, of openness, uprightness and patriotism at the families, educational and community levels, through active participation by all sectors of society with particular attention to media, religious leaders, teachers and politicians; promoting admiration and honesty awards; devising research-based policies and laws to discourage standards promoting corruption; and implementing anti-corruption training in Pakistani society at all levels of education.
