Abstract

The paper discusses the attitudes towards interpersonal and institutional trust in post-communist Romania. Based on data from the European Social Survey, round 5 (2010), the analysis includes indicators of the two types of trust, and employs correlation analysis and cluster analysis to distinguish between the trust-related behavior of different social groups. The findings of the research show that the state of distrust, more obvious in the institutional environment, but also present in personal relationships is still present, but its sources and effects tend to be different. These findings are important for sketching an evolution of mentalities, during transition, and as a starting point for further studies in business-related behavior and social dynamics.
