Citizens' confidence in the major institutions in society is important for the state of democracy. The national political institutions in Europe today meet increasing competition both from below, the regional and municipal level, and from above, especially from the European Union. This book chapter examines the relationship between citizens' preferred level of policy decision and political trust by means of data from round 1 of the European Social Survey.
