As data from the European Quality of Life Surveys and Eurobarometer show, the sharp decline in trust in institutions was a temporary phenomenon during the recession. In some Member States, trust in the EU declined more during this period than trust in national governments, but trust in the EU has generally remained higher than trust in national governments in most countries. The report shows that moderating social tensions and feelings of social exclusion can help to stem the decline in trust. However, to boost trust in institutions, improving the quality of public services is the most powerful driver. A number of encouraging and practical consequences result from trust in public institutions: for example, countries with higher trust in political institutions have a lower level of tax evasion (VAT gap) and greater public support for policy reforms. An executive summary is also available - see Related content.

    Societal change and trust in institutions

    As data from the European Quality of Life Surveys and Eurobarometer show, the sharp decline in trust in institutions was a temporary phenomenon during the recession. In some Member States, trust in the EU declined more during this period than trust in national governments, but trust in the EU has generally remained higher than trust in national governments in most countries.

    Ühiskonnamuutused ja usaldus institutsioonide vastu

    Author(s): 
    Eurofound

    Euroopa elukvaliteedi uuringute ja Eurobaromeetri andmed tõendavad, et usalduse oluline vähenemine institutsioonide vastu majanduslanguse ajal oli ajutine nähtus. Mõnes liikmesriigis vähenes sellel perioodil usaldus ELi vastu rohkem kui usaldus riikide valitsuste vastu, kuid enamikus riikides jäi usaldus ELi vastu üldiselt suuremaks kui usaldus riikide valitsuste vastu. Aruanne näitab, et sotsiaalsete pingete ja sotsiaalse tõrjutuse tajumise leevendamine võib aidata peatada usalduse vähenemist. Tõhusaim tegur usalduse suurendamiseks institutsioonide vastu on avalike teenuste kvaliteedi parandamine. Usaldusel avaliku sektori institutsioonide vastu on palju motiveerivaid ja praktilisi tulemusi: näiteks on riikides, kus poliitilisi institutsioone usaldatakse rohkem, vähem maksupettust (käibemaksulõhe) ja poliitikareformide toetus on suurem.
