Dr. Jouni Häkli, Professor

Department of Regional Studies
Senior researcher
2007-2008

I study the role of social trust in conditioning international cross-border co-operation. I seek to make visible the different ways in which trust can be understood as a geographical phenomenon. I am particularly interested in the cultural assumptions attached to the concept of trust in theories of social capital. In addition to conceptual analysis I study concretely the twin city of Tornio-Haparanda and its development projects from the point of view of international trust. I pay attention to social trust as manifest in the networking practices of professionals involved in cross-border co-operation and the everyday practices of the borderland denizens, and analyse the relationships between the two.
