Networking and Trust during the Cold War
Marína Zavacká and Adam Hudek

Our aim is to explore relations of trust between citizens and political institutions, as well as between institutions and their representatives especially in the wake of political ruptures. We seek to analyse the phenomenon of trust and distrust across the East-West borders in the sphere of economic, cultural and scientific relations as well as in the emigrees circles.
