Gemeinsam gegen Krisen: Die EU-Afrika-Partnerschaft und die neuen geopolitischen Herausforderungen
Europa und Afrika können zukünftige Krisen angesichts der geopolitischen Herausforderungen in nahezu allen Bereichen nur gemeinsam erfolgreich bewältigen. Für Frieden, Wohlstand und Nachhaltigkeit sowie wirtschaftliche Entwicklung ist eine stabile Partnerschaft zwischen der EU und der Afrikanischen Union eine Voraussetzung, sind doch die Interessen der beiden Kontinente eng miteinander verflochten. So hat neben den Themen Klimawandel und Migration z.B. der Krieg in der Ukraine auch unmittelbare Folgen für den Frieden und die Sicherheit in Regionen Afrikas: Sei es aufgrund der Nahrungsmittelknappheit wegen ausbleibender Exporte aus der Ukraine, wegen Energiearmut oder bezüglich Sicherheitsfragen, wie etwa der Konflikt in Mali zuletzt ein Schauplatz der Konfrontation Russlands mit dem Westen wurde. Was folgt nun aus der aktuellen Situation für regionale Kooperationen und auch die Beziehung zwischen der EU und Afrika? Diese und weitere Fragen diskutieren wir in diesem Crisis Talk.

Crisis Talks des Leibniz-Forschungsverbund „Krisen einer globalisierten Welt“
Krisen sind in der EU historisch ein wichtiger Motor der Veränderung und des Fortschritts. In Krisensituationen ist die von großer Heterogenität geprägte und auf konsensuale Meinungsbildung ausgerichtete EU bisher meist in der Lage gewesen, gemeinsame Wahrnehmungen herzustellen, Blockaden zu überwinden und Integration zu gestalten. Der Leibniz-Forschungsverbund „Krisen einer globalisierten Welt“ geht in der Reihe Crisis Talks der Frage nach, wie Europa mit seinen aktuellen und vergangenen Krisen umgehen sollte.

Trust, gullibility and skepticism

Virtual Keynote at the Second Annual Conference of ConTrust

Thursday, November 17, 2022, 6.00p.m. CET

Prof Pippa Norris (John F. Kennedy School of Government, Harvard University)

Moderation: Prof Nicole Deitelhoff (ConTrust, PRIF, Goethe University)

The extensive contemporary literature from multiple disciplines has highlighted many beneficial consequences claimed to arise from trust within advanced industrialized societies, such as for sustaining love (Larzelere and Huston), overcoming collective action problems within local communities (Putnam); lubricating the wheels of economic markets (Arrow, Fukuyama); managing organizations (Mayer, Davis and Schoorman);  overcoming gridlock in policymaking (Hetherington); legitimating governments (Gamson); sustaining rule of law (Tyler); and facilitating international cooperation underpinning democratic peace (Russett).  It follows that any signs of low or eroding trust are, and should be, a matter of serious concern.

But a broader perspective recognizes that in fact trust has two faces, not one. Blind trust in anti-vax posts weaken herd immunity, putting lives at risk. Faith in Q-Anon conspiracy theories triggered violent insurrection attacking the U.S. Capital. Equally disastrous consequences can follow from gullible belief in fake Covid-19 cures like ingesting bleach, investing lifesavings in Madoff pyramid schemes, or trusting the Big Lie about President Biden’s legitimate victory. It is well-known that trust has a dark side, after all, the fable of the frog and the scorpion teaches children to beware of faux promises.

This presentation, drawn from a forthcoming OUP book “In Praise of Skepticism”, questions the prevalent rosy assumptions underpinning modern accounts of trust. The study unpacks the concept and advances a new 4-fold typology of trustworthy relationships. This is used to analyze new empirical evidence drawn from the World Values Survey 1981-2021 in 115 societies. Social, political and international dimension of trust are compared among diverse authoritarian states, ranging from Myanmar, Tajikistan and Kazakhstan to China, Russia, Nicaragua, and Qatar, as well as among industrialized liberal democracies such as Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands, the U.S. and the UK. The conclusion argues that the risks of too much compliant trust, among individuals and societies, have commonly been underestimated.

We are never quite as aware of the importance of trust as when it breaks down. Though one emergency is different from the other and though little seems to unite disparate events such as climate change, the 2011 European debt crisis, the outbreak of Covid-19 and the war in Ukraine, exploring the complexities of trust, or the lack thereof, gives us some valuable insight on these events’ unfolding. It has been said time and again that trust binds together the social world we live in and that we display trust simply by daring to get up in the morning. Trust is found in all human interactions, from those of everyday life to international relations among heads of state. Trust is what human institutions live off, as numerous social norms crucially depend on our trusting others to follow them too. Yet, there seems to be a widespread crisis of trust that plagues our social and political world, making it difficult for citizens to trust their government, epistemically reputed authorities, neutral agencies such as the judiciary, international systems of cooperation and their very neighbours. Moreover, growing political and social conflicts – ranging from the increased polarization within Western democracies to the decline of the liberal international order – force us to wonder whether it is possible for trust to flourish under conditions of conflict.
The importance of trust combined with its apparent scarcity has made it a rightful topic of interest for scholars in political and social sciences, philosophy, epistemology, legal and political theory. Work in each of these disciplines uncovers a part of the trust puzzle, aiming to explain what it means to trust, when trusting has value and is justified and what political, social and economic effects we can get from healthy relationships of trust. Looking at trust from different angles is fruitful because it educates us on the multiple, sometimes divergent, dimensions characterising the plethora of human phenomena that generally go under the label of trust, from face-to-face relations to state interactions. It also shows how trust is defined and measured in different, at times conflicting ways. We should be aware of the different vocabularies with which trust is treated and we should welcome interdisciplinary discussions that shed more light on the various dimensions of trust.
This is what Raquel Barradas de Freitas, Sergio Lo Iacono and other contributors have realised with the recently published Trust Matters: Cross-Disciplinary Essays (Hart 2021). The volume brings together trust scholars of various fields, from legal and political theory to social and political science, as well as history and philosophy. Their interdisciplinary conversation started with a workshop organized at the European University Institute in 2018 and attended by many of the authors. Goethe University and ConTrust would provide an invaluable opportunity to continue that discussion and to enrich it with new perspectives and contributions. While ConTrust’s strong interdisciplinary character dovetails with the book’s diverse chapters, its nuanced approach to trust as a phenomenon with both positive and negative undertones, as well as its innovative focus on the intricacies of trust and conflict will be highly beneficial for fostering a fruitful exchange among trust experts. Thus, the workshop will efficiently disseminate the research results achieved with Trust Matters. It will also offer scholars the opportunity to present current work and benefit from feedback from other trust experts. Finally, the workshop will further expand the network of ConTrust, by establishing new contacts with other international scholars in the field.

Trust dynamics in the digital society: a research agenda

ConTrust Speaker Series

The digital society relies on an ever-expanding network of digital infrastructures. This forces us to rethink some of our basic assumptions about one of the most fundamental resources in all interpersonal, social, economic relations: trust.
Our newly established interdisciplinary research initiative at the University of Amsterdam will look at trust dynamics in the digital society from three perspectives. First, we would like to address the fundamental problem, that despite their widespread use, we know little about the trustworthiness of our digital infrastructures. At best it is difficult to establish their trustworthiness (such as with AI), at worst they are proven to be untrustworthy (as is the case with social media). Second, we aim to understand the role these digital infrastructures play in interpersonal and societal trust dynamics. They disrupt existing trust relations and offer new ways to trust each other. Third we hope to improve upon our current scientific methods and theories, which face serious limits when it comes to the study of change of social structures, institutions, and processes under the conditions of rapid technological transformation. Research on trust in technology and trust by technology is siloed, and focuses on narrowly defined technologies (AI), or problems (system security), and lacks a comprehensive, multidisciplinary, long-term-view.

Prof. Dr. Balazs Bodo is an economist, social scientist, Associate Professor at the Institute for Information Law, University of Amsterdam. He is the director of the Universities interdisciplinary "Trust in the digital society" Research Priority Area. He was a Fulbright Visiting Researcher at Stanford University’s Center for Internet and Society in 2006/7 and a Fellow at the Center between 2006 and 2012. In 2012/13 he was a Fulbright Fellow at the Berkman Center for Internet and Society at Harvard University. In 2013 he moved to Amsterdam as a Marie Curie Fellow at the Institute for Information Law (IViR) at the University of Amsterdam. In 2018 he received an ERC Starting Grant to study the legal, and political implications of blockchain based technologies, and started the Blockchain & Society Policy Research Lab. In 2019 he has been a senior visiting fellow at the Weizenbaum-Institut für die vernetzte Gesellschaft, Berlin. His academic interests include copyright and economics, piracy, media regulation, peer-to-peer communities, shadow libraries, digital archives, informal media economies, and similar regulatory conflicts around new technological architectures.
