Friday, 20 July 2018: 10:30-12:20
RC03 Community Research (host committee)

Language: English

Obviously, trust making is a substantial requisite in the process of community development in the developing countries. When we talk about Trust we intend the different levels of the conception including individual trust, generalized trust and the institutional trust. As a matter of fact, this session assumes trust making as a fundamental necessity of community development but the process of trust making especially in the developing countries might be complicated. The twisted phenomena of trust-based acts of agents in these countries which can be lead participatory acts for development is our focus point of debates. People should trust together, to the governors and the actors of development in a reciprocating manner. There is no doubt that sustainable development will be built on the concept of trust therefore our basic headlines of our discussion in this session will follow these titles:

  • The comparative study of developed countries and developing ones in different levels of trust
  • The relationship between determinants of trust and the sustainable community development
  • The ways of making and promoting of trust as a necessity for community development
  • The obstacles of trust making among agents of development in developing countries
  • The procedure of trust making for participatory acts of community developing in the society

We enthusiastically welcome the theoretical viewpoints of adherents of sustainable development and also practice experiences of developing agents from the entire world chiefly who had difficulties to pave the path of community development through trust making in different levels.
