In this thesis, I will present some new insights on the links between violence and perception of corruption. I will regress the number of conflict episodes aggregated on a district level, on the individual perception of corruption toward different level of the state (Member of Parliament, police), and include a set of control variables and fix effects. The use of a difference in difference methodology with district cluster provides us a solid base for our
empirical analysis. After different robustness check I find that more conflict influences positively the perception of corruption toward the elected local government councilor, meaning that individuals perceive the local government councilor as less corrupt.
