The article focuses on the issue of trust development in low-trust societies. Based on a review of the existing literature, we discuss the types of trust as well as mechanisms of trust creation. On this basis, we propose a dynamic four-stage model of trust development. The model is based on the assumption of gradual accumulation of various trust forms on a social level. The article also discusses the implications of the model as well as the possible future routes of empirical research it may open.
This article is an outcome of a research project entitled: “Alternative sources of social capital in management practices within organizations” realized at Kozminski University and financed by the The National Centre for Research and Development as a part of the „LIDER” program.
