State-led Repression, Low Trust Levels and Mobilization in the MENA

ConTrust Speaker Series - Public lecture by Nadine Sika

A standard assump­tion of research is that trust and conflict stand in oppo­sition and exclude one another. The ConTrust Speaker Series questions that assump­tion and inquires into the dynamics of trust and conflict in various contexts of social life. Can trust arise in, manifest itself and be stabi­lized in conflicts rather than apart from them? What are the condi­tions for that?

In this ConTrust Speaker Series lecture Nadine Sika, associate professor of Compa­rative Politics at the Ame­rican Univer­sity in Cairo and currently guest researcher at PRIF, will further inves­tigate state-led repre­ssion, low trust levels and mobi­liza­tion in the MENA.
