TiGRE -Trust in Governance and Regulation in Europe
The demands of citizens and public authorities for good regulation are constantly increasing, no matter if it is for data and privacy protection, financial stability, or product safety and traceability. In such a context, all actors need to trust governance and regulatory regimes that their interests are safeguarded. However, recent scandals have created threats for citizens’ trust in regulatory regimes. Despite this relevance, trust in governance systems and regulation in the European Multi-Level System is still scarcely researched on.
TiGRE started on January 1st, 2020, and is a multidisciplinary research project which benefits from the expertise of nine universities and research centres and one SME, from nine different countries. TiGRE receives funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme. Drawing to two large-N surveys amongst citizens and regulators, experimental designs and interviews with different groups, the project presents and discusses evidence for trust-relations in the regulatory regime. An optimal level of trust is a precondition and a consequence of well-functioning of regulatory regimes, which operate across different levels of governance for carrying out regulatory policies. In this context, we will investigate under which conditions regulatory regimes are trusted by analysing the interactions between the involved actors.
The panel will present the overall project and first selected research outcomes related to trust in regulation.
