Languages of publication
Artykuł przedstawia wybrane stanowiska w toczonej od kilku dekad debacie dotyczącej kryzysu zaufania do władz publicznych. Jedną z kluczowych kwestii jest zapewnienie równowagi pomiędzy zaufaniem, niezbędnym do sprawnego funkcjonowania systemu demokratycznego, a uzasadnioną nieufnością obywateli, konieczną do ich społecznej kontroli. Pytanie to nabiera szczególnego znaczenia w sytuacji niskiego poziomu zaufania wobec władz publicznych i rosnącej popularności radykalnych ruchów społecznych i politycznych. Zdaniem wielu badaczy, zawodność dotychczasowych mechanizmów instytucjonalizacji nieufności stanowi istotne zagrożenie dla dotychczasowego porządku społecznego i politycznego.
The paper presents selected positions emerging in debate over the causes and effects of trust in institutions that has been going on for several decades. One of the key issues is the question of the balance between trust, ne-cessary for the efficient functioning of the democratic system, including public institutions, and the distrust of citizens, necessary for their social control. The above question becomes particularly important in a situation of low public trust in government and growing popularity of radical social and political movements. According to many researchers, the failure of the existing forms of institutionalization of distrust poses a significant threat to the current social and political order.
