Rebuilding trust

 

Press release | Global Solutions Initiative moves to the Hertie School of Governance

Rebuilding trust in institutions - both public and private - a decade after the financial crisis, is a task politicians, policymakers, business people and other stakeholders are still grappling with today.  The financial crisis created fissures in trust that have reverberated as a crisis of legitimacy for the rule of law, democracy and transparency around the world. By what means can trust be rebuilt? 

This crisis is the focus of The Governance Report 2018, published annually by Oxford University Press. The report was launched on the occasion of the opening  of the new Secretariat of the Global Solutions Initiative (GSI), housed at the Hertie School. The GSI bundles and disseminates scientific advice for the G20 from members of leading global research institutions.

Panelists discussed one of the key questions of our time: how to reverse deepening polarisation of societies, and how to maintain a healthy dialogue between actors from all sides of an issue. They agreed that rebuilding trust after shocks like the financial crisis required that those most responsible are held to account, thus minimising damage to the legitimacy of the entire system.
