Their authority is beginning to crack, due to democratization, individualization and increasing personal autonomy. On a positive note, a critical attitude towards our institutions and their claims forces them to stay alert and prepared for change. But if distrust, as the dark side of a critical attitude, takes over what does that mean for our society?
What is trust? Why is it so important? And when trust is lacking, how can it be rebuilt? That’s what TEDxRadboudU is all about. Inspirational talks, different angles and new perspectives.
