TiGRE final conference just launched

Join us at the TiGRE final conference! It is organised as a satellite event of the 2023 Biennial Conference of the ECPR Standing Group on Regulatory Governance (“RegGov2023”, 12-14 July 2023, University of Antwerp).

The TiGRE final conference is launched today with a keynote presentation given by Prof. Martino Maggetti (University of Lausanne, TiGRE coordinator). During the keynote, the key research findings from the TiGRE consortium’s studies of trust relationships in governance will be presented. This includes findings on if and how trust and distrust can coexist, how (dis)trust and cooperation link with the functioning of the regulatory regime, how accountability, transparency, and participation affect regulatory trust dynamics, how to explain citizens’ trust dynamics, etc.

The keynote will be followed by a panel debate with David Levi-Faur (HUJI) and Martha Baxter (OECD, TiGRE external advisor) among others, to discuss the relevance of TiGRE findings for science and policy. The panellists will get the opportunity to discuss and reflect, considering how the TiGRE findings resonate with their own work and how they would build on those findings in their future work.

In addition to the keynote presentation and panel debate, six panels covering 15 TiGRE-related papers will be organised during the three-days conference.
