VIDEO INTRODUCTION – UCL PUBLIC POLICY AND UCL GRAND CHALLENGES
Trust In Europe During A Time of Crisis
With Martin Porter, Edelman The Centre
6pm, 19 March 2012
Martin Porter will discuss the decline in public trust in government, as well as the challenges that this poses for other institutions that seek to engage with and influence public debate.
With one of the most tumultuous years in European affairs now just behind us, the challenges facing Europe today remain arguably as great as any faced in the history of the EU. Against this backdrop, the lecture will draw 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 – and examine what these findings means for the way in which each needs to understand the others, and how to engage with them as a result. It will also consider some specific implications for the European Union, its policy-making and institutions, and the conduct of public affairs in it, during such a time of crisis of confidence.
Professor Richard Bellamy, Director, UCL European Institute, will act as discussant. The event will be chaired by Professor David Coen, UCL School of Public Policy.
- Martin Porter was co-founder and Managing Director of The Centre, Brussels' first do-tank, operating at the interface of European public policy and communications. It merged with Edelman in 2010 to become Edelman The Centre.
