Enlightened trust: An examination of trust and distrust in governance – conditions, effects and remedies

Project description

A new understanding of trust, distrust in governance

During the last decade, EU societies experienced a decrease in trust in governance. It's a trend that undermines democracies. The EU-funded EnTrust project intends to offer a new understanding of trust and distrust in governance, aiming at sustainable democratic societies in Europe. It will create a theoretical base to understand the dynamic connection between trust and distrust. It will develop an empirical data set aiming to calculate how trust and distrust are growing concerning governance at local, national and European levels. The project will also map trust and distrust levels in European societies, systematically comparing levels of interaction. In-depth interviews with citizens and governance actors as well as analyses of online and social media content will be used by seven research teams.
