The Return of Trust?

The Return of Trust? Institutions and the Public after a Crisis

5. október, kl. 15.00-17.00: Aðalbygging Háskóla Íslands, stofa 051

The proposed seminar does address the broad theme of how Icelandic institutions have gone about trying to recapture other institutions’ and the public’s trust after the 2008 financial crisis. The aim is to explore how far trust has been restored. The general conclusion is We are working toward trust, but it takes a long time to get there. The lessons are We, society, need to find a way to monitor the actions of those in government and finance to prevent sudden upheavals.
