“The Untouchable Trust: National Crises and Societal Trust in Sweden 1986-2017”
We know little about the long-term effects crises have on the institutional trust. The study analyzes whether 13 major crises in Sweden between 1986 and 2017 relate to changing patterns of institutional trust. The result suggests that institutional trust in Sweden is high and durable, despite the experience of crises.
