Sociopsychological approach to trust (or distrust): concluding comments

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


As concluding comments to the present book, we would like to suggest that although the contributors provided many different angles to shed light on the nature of trust and distrust and then specifically on the essence of trust, or especially distrust, in the Israeli Jewish-Palestinian relations, one common denominator is found in every contribution: Namely all of them recognize that trust and distrust are socio psychological concepts. In view of this shared commonality we would like to provide a socio psychological conceptual framework of trust and distrust as a concluding statement.
