The study on “Social Trust and Institutional Authority in the Albanian Democracy” constitutes one of the most important activities of IDM for 2010-2011. It was undertaken within the framework of defining social perceptions regarding the role of social trust in the construction of the rule of law and of providing an answer vis-à-vis this relationship. It is based on the idea that there can be no simple answers for such complicated issues.
The current study offers data on phenomena related to the system of active values within the society. It views these values as very efficient components of social processes, especially in building trust and institutions.
