EU Public Policy Series: Martin Porter on Trust in Europe


Against the backdrop of arguably one of the most tumultuous years in European affairs, the lecture by Martin Porter drew on the most recent opinion survey data from an annual survey by Edelman, on the state of trust between four major constituencies - Government, Business, NGOs and the media. He examined what these findings meant for the way in which each needs to understand the others, and how to engage with them as a result, whilst also considering the specific implications for the European Union, its policy-making and institutions, and the conduct of public affairs in it.
