Faculty of Politics
The magister thesis aims at development of structural dimension of trust, as well as define its importance for political processes. Achieving this objective has made by receive the scopes of theoretical formulation of trusts concept and modelling interrelation between structure of trust and dynamics of political transformations. Two general structural dimensions of trust relations were mark out. First concern with degree institutionalization of interactions, while the second one concern with size of groups, which has a highly intensive of trust relations. However, the statistical analysis research did reveal one more dimension describes the proudness of national belonging. Obviously, it is background for the preceding two dimensions. Interrelations between structural dimensions and dynamics of political transformations mediate by institutional practices, which might assume more universalism or particularism character after the structure of trust relations.As a result, the hypothesis that a trust is not only psychological relation, but also it has some structure dimensions has theoretically proposed and empirically proved within the thesis. Such structure dimensions concern with the most intensive exchange group size, as well as degree of institutionalization condition universalism or particularism of the polity institutional system.Furthermore, within the thesis theoretical and methodological suggestions has been formulated. Methodological suggestions associated to optimization of measurement process for trust level. Theoretical ones direct to signpost of the perspective directions for future research of structural aspects of trust.
