PERITIA – Policy, Expertise, and Trust in Action
Project time period
2020 – 2023
The international consortium comprises 11 institutions:
The project brings together over 20 philosophers, social and natural scientists, policy experts, ethicists, psychologists, media specialists, and civil-society organizations to study trust in and the trustworthiness of policy-related expert opinion. Using climate change as a test case, PERITIA will carry out multidisciplinary and integrative research to understand the factors that contribute to the enhancement or breakdown of trust in experts involved in social and political decision-making. Since trust in experts and expert advisory bodies is a fundamental condition of good governance, the project will contribute to improving the measures of trust for sustainable and legitimate governance.
PERITIA’s investigation will be carried out in three phases: theoretical, empirical and ameliorative.
This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 870883.
