Centre for Trust Research
The Centre for Trust Research conducts research on organisational and interorganisational trust, as well as to examine trust comparatively, from Asian, Middle Eastern and African perspectives.
Led by Professor Reinhard Bachmann, the centre's mission is to deliver high-class research on trust in organisational and inter-organisational contexts, and to facilitate contacts between trust researchers to achieve the same. In addition to in-depth conceptual groundwork, we will carry out empirical studies, frequently based on a comparative design.
It is our main goal to advance trust research based particularly, but not exclusively, on sociological, psychological, HRM- and more broadly management-related approaches.
