Trust, Institutions and Economic Growth in South Caucasus
Mariam Matevosyan is researching the relationship between trust and economic growth in the South Caucasus. Her research question explores how trust in core democratic institutions and economic growth relate and whether the level of interpersonal trust and the level of trust in core democratic institutions relate in Armenia, Georgia, and Azerbaijan. She will use an extensive literature review of secondary sources and CRRC’s Caucasus Barometer in her methodology. Her hypothesis is that in Armenia and Georgia, economic growth positively relates to the level of public trust in core democratic institutions.
