Abstract [en]

Political trust in modern and traditional political institutions has been established to move in the same direction that is it rises and falls together. Countries that have high trust in its modern political institutions also demonstrate high trust in its traditional political institutions. This study has through a systematic and comparative analysis established that there are set of factors that affect trust in the two sets of political institutions. Among these factors are perception of state legitimacy, satisfaction with democracy and interpersonal trust. This study has further established that individual perception and assumption rather than external objective factors are the most critical predictors of trust in both modern and traditional political institutions.
