Agenda for future research into the role of trust in regulatory regimes

Frédérique Six, Hans van Ees

Research output: Chapter in Book / Report / Conference proceedingChapterAcademic


In this concluding chapter we formulate a research agenda for trust in regulatory regimes, based on the insights gained from the chapters in this edited volume. This agenda follows the five themes identified in the introductory chapter: 1) there are outstanding issues for most trust relations within regulatory regimes that need further research; 2) the interactional dynamics between the different trust relationships within regulatory regimes need more systematic research; 3) the dynamics of processes of trust building and repair within regulatory relationships are understudied; 4) there are still unresolved conceptual issues around trust and related concepts that need further study; and 5) the field is ready to move to more theory building and hypothesis testing research.
