A Research Agenda for Trust: Interdisciplinary Perspectives

About the eBook

Elgar Research Agendas outline the future of research in a given area. Leading scholars are given the space to explore their subject in provocative ways, and map out the potential directions of travel. They are relevant but also visionary.

This innovative Research Agenda brings together established scholars from a diverse range of disciplines including artificial intelligence, psychology, medicine and law enforcement to outline and assess current trust research, emphasizing how trust is a critical issue in the 21st century affecting countless areas of the modern world.

A Research Agenda for Trust analyzes the concept of trust within a variety of contexts, such as sociology, computer science, cognitive psychology, engineering, organizational behavior, AI, entrepreneurship, healthcare, neuroscience, and nuclear non-proliferation. Encouraging multidimensional and interdisciplinary research, chapters underline the connections between differing disciplines. Using the 1995 Mayer, Davis, & Schoorman model of trust as an initial starting point, contributors highlight that successful trust relationships in the modern world are swiftly deteriorating and argue that as a result, research must move forward in order to develop better, healthier and more trusting relationships.

Imaginative, incisive and accessible, this Research Agenda will be an enlightening read for academics, students and researchers specializing in business ethics and trust, human resource management, organisation studies, social sciences, sociology and social policy. Considering interpersonal relationships within a variety of professional contexts, this book will also be of benefit to practitioners working in human resources, business management and governance.
