BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE

Trust is a complex concept and shared human experience that transcends disciplinary, cultural, and generational boundaries. In the aftermath of the global financial crisis and other scandals, including banking and food, but also in civil conflicts and social tensions, it is clear that trust is central to every human relationship whether with another individual, a group, or an institution. These scandals and conflicts highlight hidden and unforeseen vulnerabilities, the interconnectedness of individuals and organisations, and dependences on the judgement of anonymous others. Such events renew our interest in topics such as transparency, control and regulation, and in the balance of power between individuals, organisations and governments. In addition the dark side of trust, distrust and trust repair have attracted more research attention but our knowledge is still rather small compared to what organisations and governments are facing in these crisis-ridden times.

Despite significant advances over the last decade in trust research, our understanding remains limited with much still to be explained. Important questions remain about how trust is different in its antecedents and consequences, and particularly in understanding the dynamics and processes behind its creation, maintenance, and restoration across a multiplicity of important contexts and in key relationships. This 8th FINT workshop seeks to provide a forum in which our trust knowledge can be shared and extended with the aid of our inspiring community. We welcome both junior and senior contributors representing both academic and practitioner communities, across a spectrum of academic disciplines, to present new theoretical perspectives, or empirical insights gleaned from either qualitative or quantitative methods. Our call for papers is thus deliberately broad.

PhD/EARLY CAREERS WORKSHOP

First International Network of Trust research (FINT) has always been keen to support early career scholars. To further this aim, and in the hope that this will become a feature of future FINT conferences, we have decided to extend the conference to offer a pre-workshop specifically created for new scholars.

The PhD/early careers workshop will run from Tuesday 4th November until 4pm on Wednesday 5th November and will be open to PhD students and early career researchers.
