Upcoming Events

The perceived decline in trust in democracy and government has become a cliché of our times. Furthermore, transparency has frequently been identified as a potential remedy to this phenomena. However, both the concepts of ‘trust’ and ‘transparency’ have been the subject of intense debate. Rather than focus on the conceptual dimension, this presentation, which is part of the WISERD Civil Society Seminar Series, critically examines the approaches adopted within existing research on civil society and other sectors - to measuring trust and transparency and the extent to which a mixed methods approach can offer an effective approach to exploring the interplay between trust and transparency
This event is part of the WISERD Cardiff lunchtime seminar series which focuses on research currently being undertaken by WISERD researchers.
