Democracy, trust and political inequality
This project aims to provide insight into the relationships between political and social inequality in political participation and trust. A main question is whether inequality challenges democratic legitimacy and thereby democratic steering and policy implementation.
Project Work Packages
The project is organized through seven work pages:
- Research review on the relationship between democracy, trust and political inequality
- A descriptive analysis of different social groups’ trust in local democracy
- Innovative systems for participation between elections and political trust
- The correlation between representation, legitimacy and political inequality in participation
- Political participation and social inequality among immigrants
- Local politicians’ trust in the citizen participation
- The legitimacy of local democracy in light of political trust and equality.
The project is led by the Institute for Social Research in cooperation with NORCE Norwegian Research Centre AS. The project is funded by the Norwegian Ministry of Local Government and Modernisation.
All together, the project will present a complexed picture of the relationship between democracy, trust and political inequality.
