QoG lunch seminar with Lisanne de Blok


The QoG Institute regularly organizes seminars related to research on Quality of Government. The seminars address the theoretical and empirical problem of how political institutions of high quality can be created and maintained as well as the effects of Quality of Government on a number of policy areas, such as health, the environment, social policy, and poverty.

Speakers are invited from the international research community and experts from NGOs and other organizations to the lunch seminars. The seminars last for one hour and include a short presentation by the speaker (30-35 min) followed by a joint discussion about the topic.

If nothing else is indicated, the seminars are held in English.

Title: Why one effect does not fit all: the contingency of the relationship between government performance and political trust.

Abstract: Political trust is commonly considered to be driven by evaluations of government performance, where citizens base their trust in political institutions on whether these institutions perform in accordance to their expectations. Despite numerous of empirical tests, evidence for this evaluative approach to political trust is still largely contested. This project calls attention to the heterogeneity within and between societies in their reactions to government performance. The aim of this project is to shed light on the key conditions that moderate the relationship between government performance and political trust. Doing so, it delves into the causal mechanisms behind this supposed policy-feedback link. The project covers four key factors: perceptions of government responsibility, the institutional concentration of government power, perceived issue salience, and personal experiences with state institutions. While the presentation will briefly touch upon all key conditions, I will elaborate on a working paper on the last condition (personal experiences with welfare state institutions) in more detail.
