Abstract

Increasingly research considers the functioning of regulatory regimes as a complex interplay between not only regulatory actors at different levels of government, but also between political, administrative, regulatory and judicial actors, in interaction with relevant private actors like regulatory intermediaries and interest groups. The relevance of studying trust and distrust between regime actors and how citizens’ trust in the regime depends on the intra-regime trust is high. In this panel papers using original data from the H2020 project TiGRE ‘Trust in Governance and Regulation in Europe’ are ligned up in combination with papers coming from other research in order to stimulate the scientific debate on the explanations for trust and distrust in regulatory regimes and their impacts.
