Bertha Erasto Losioki


This study examined the role of integrity in maintaining peace and social welfare. Integrity as a socio-psychological construct plays an important role in achieving the goals of an organisation as well as those of the nation at large. Integrity emphasizes a person's right actions in accordance with acceptable principles and values. The study used a qualitative research approach. A documentary review was used to examine the role of integrity in maintaining peace and social welfare. The findings show that integrity contributes to building a person's character. It helps people to work honestly, transparently and responsibly. It enhances the person’s commitment in accordance with the principles of the relevant organisations. The findings also show that integrity contributes to building and maintaining peace at the individual, community and national levels. Furthermore, the findings show that there is a remarkable improvement of integrity in the public service. The study recommends training programmes on integrity that aim to emphasize peace and unity for the well-being of society. Training should be provided in both public and private institutions. The training programmes will help to build awareness, to nurture integrity, and to enhance ethical behaviour.
