During the “Political and Social Trust: Citizens and Context” -conference professor Eric Uslaner  (University of Maryland) will give an open keynote lecture on "Corruption and Social and Political Trust”

The lecture is open to all interested, welcome!


The conference is organized as a part of the activities of the Academy of Finland funded project the Consortium of Trust Research – Pathways to Political Trust (CONTRE) . The key objective of the project is to understand to what extent short-term factors explain fluctuations in political trust and whether long-term cumulative forces explain gradual change.

The conference brings together scholars who study the causes and consequences of social and political trust at different levels of society. It consists of keynote addresses by Professor Jonas Linde (University of Bergen) and Professor Eric M. Uslaner (University of Maryland) as well as four thematic panels.
