Abstract: This research focuses on identifying the role of ethical work context (EWC) along with internal social capital (SC) in creation of innovative work behavior (IWB) among teachers in Higher education institutions across Pakistan. Data from 724 faculty members from various public/private universities were analyzed in relation to ethical work context, internal social capital and innovative work behavior. It was identified that ethical work context had a direct impact on innovative work behavior. Furthermore, social capital played significant role in creation of innovative work behavior and also work as mediator between ethical work context and innovative work behavior.
