Bridging the Trust Divide

Research output: A Conference proceeding or a Chapter in BookChapter


We are witnessing a growing trust divide in Australia that has increased in scope and intensity since 20017. By 2025, if current trends continue, fewer than 10 percent of Australians will trust their politicians and political institutions (Stoker, Evans & Halupka 2018a). The purpose of this concluding chapter is threefold, to: 1. assess whether the trust divide between government and citizens matters 2. evaluate the range of measures taken to promote trust in government and politics internationally 3. examine the views of Australian citizens and parliamentarians on various reform proposals.
