A Question of Trust

The age-old question of what holds our societies together re-emerges periodically, particularly in times of crisis. In a world ever more globalised and virtual, the answer is often cast in terms of "trust", with its pivotal role as regularly called upon as its health called into question. How has trust risen to this centrality, and is it all as straightforward as it seems?

"A bad day for Europe"?

Juncker’s nomination was not a sudden, not an unexpected and not even a distinct event. Neither does it spell an end to the European Council’s dominance in constitutional politics or make EU reform less likely.

When anger masks apathy

As a closer look at the European Parliament Elections in Central and Eastern Europe suggests, it may be non-voting, rather than populist protest voting, which could prove the real long-term threat to sustainability of the EU’s troubled democratic institutions.

Two funding schemes for UCL faculty and research students.

The UCL European Institute invites applications from UCL staff and from groups of MA, PhD and/or post-doctoral students to fund projects that lead to or support collaborative research-based projects on Europe or the European Union. Proposed projects may be formulated in response to current affairs or long-standing research questions. The aim is to develop new research output, or seek to raise the profile and impact of current research.

Successful applicants for funding will be expected to contribute either a working paper or short comment related to their project for potential inclusion in the EI's Analysis and Publications section of its website.

Please email the European Institute if you have any questions:
