The world is attempting to navigate a period of rapid and often turbulent change at a time when the public’s trust in leaders and societal institutions is unusually low. Breakneck advances in technology, geopolitical upheaval and crises such as climate change and rising economic inequality are posing unprecedented challenges to decision-makers across government, business, media and NGOs – making the need to rebuild trust as urgent as it is difficult.

What can be done to rebuild trust is the theme of this collection of essays, edited by Matthew Bishop, former business editor of The Economist, with advisor Rik Kirkland, former editor of Fortune and Edelman Trust Institute Advisory Board member. This third annual publication by the Edelman Trust Institute offers insights from trust-building experts on how to overcome the trust deficit and help humanity to emerge from this time of change, better able to face the future with confidence.
