The Trust in World Politics Reading and Discussion Group was established in Aberystwyth University in the autumn of 2007 and meets on a regular basis during term time to discuss readings by different researchers working on trust. It also provides a forum for doctoral and post-doctoral students working on trust/distrust to present ideas from their research. Additionally, the group has a visiting speaker programme and organises seminars which bring together researchers working on trust from a range of disciplines.
