What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

“This book provides a thought-provoking and timely perspective on one of the European Union’s greatest challenges. The EU builds and relies on trust; what happens when trust is questioned as a result of Brexit, the handling of international crises and the undermining of Rule of Law in certain Member States? This book presents highly relevant answers to policy-makers and scholars alike.” (Ann Linde, Swedish Minister for EU Affairs and Trade)

“This timely volume adroitly focuses our attention on the issue of trust in the European Union. Its well-judged collection of contributions from different disciplines helps us to reach a nuanced understanding of the conditions in which trustworthiness can be earned and sustained in a period of political contestation.” (Professor Dame Helen Wallace, Fellow of the British Academy, UK)
