Political Trust in Crisis: Determinants and Solutions

Project description

The drivers of political discontent

Public confidence in political institutions is declining and Europeans are leaning more and more towards populism. While this is not a new phenomenon, the main drivers of political discontent are not well understood. The ERC-funded POLTRUSTLAB project will collect the most detailed individual-level dataset on perceptions, beliefs, and attitudes. It will use survey experiments to uncover the modes of reasoning that generate a link between economic shocks and political discontent. This novel methodology will study the fundamental drivers of political discontent, exploring policy responses of traditional parties and populist narratives as potential mediating factors. It will also investigate how trust in the political system can be regained.
