Languages of publication
The aim of this article is to interpret the causes and consequences of strengthening or weakening public trust in representative bodies at local and central level in the Czech Republic. The author seeks to answer the questions why in the Czech Republic the public trust in municipal councils is significantly and consistently higher than trust in Parliament, and what implications from such a situation may arise for the efficiency and legitimacy of these institutions. Further the paper discusses issues of interconnectedness between institutional and interpersonal trust, and what tools or measures could be employed in order to protect and strengthen institutional efficiency and democratic legitimacy.
