Crisis in Trust

Covering 28 countries and over 33,000 respondents, the Edelman 2017 Trust Barometer focuses on feelings of trust around the four key institutions of government, business, media and NGOs.

It serves a backdrop to the social and cultural developments of the past couple of years, providing data and context.

Findings show that trust in these institutions has declined in 21 out of 28 countries, constituting the biggest decline in trust since population tracking began in 2012.

A worthwhile read for anyone wishing to understand the psychology behind outcomes such as Brexit and the US election.
