TiGRE 1st Stakeholder Forum meeting

On 10 June 2021, the TiGRE project organised its first Stakeholder Forum meeting to present and discuss the results of our large-scale survey on trust in regulation (read more about the survey here).

TiGRE Consortium Meeting CM4

Our fourth TiGRE Consortium Meeting CM4 was held on 10 and 11 June, as a virtual event due to the current COVID-19 pandemic. The progress achieved so far and the work for the coming months was discussed with all partners. In particular, UiO kindly shared the preliminary results coming out from our large-scale survey (read more about the survey here).

We also had the chance to discuss and receive feedback from our external advisors, Prof. Nikiforos Diamandouros (Academy of Athens), Prof. Itzhak Galnoor (Van Leer Jerusalem Institute), Anna Pietikainen (OECD Network of Economic Regulators) and Prof. Vincent Martenet (University of Lausanne).

“In this survey experiment we explore how different enforcement styles affect citizens’ trust in six countries in a rigorous way. The large scale of this cross-national experiment allows us to also explore contextual differences across countries and between domains”, says Dr. S. Grimmelikhuijsen, Associate Professor at Utrecht University.

A description of the TiGRE study on the drivers of citizens’ trust in regulatory agencies and regulated organisations has been developed and is available for download, as a single page, printer-friendly PDF info sheet.

Around 1,500 participants to the TiGRE large-scale survey!

Our large-scale survey, which closed on 29 March 2021, gathered approximately 1,500 responses from actors involved in the regulatory regimes of different sectors and countries covered by TiGRE: read our infosheet about the design of the survey here.

We are currently preparing and cleaning the large dataset, alongside a research report which will describe the trust relationships among actors and identify the drivers of trust dynamics.

We warmly thank all survey participants for their time and answers, which are crucial for the progress of the TiGRE project!
