On 1st December, an interdiciplinary workshop on 'Trust in Global Health' will be held at the University of York. The workshop will bring together around scholars from the fields of International Relations, Political Theory and History to address the following questions: 

1. What is trust, how can it be measured and applied to the analysis of the politics?

2. To what extent does trust impact upon the provision, access to and quality of public policy and development initiatives?

3. How can trusting relations be fostered in health and development policies?

Topics for discussion will include, but are not limited to: philosophical aspects of trust; trust in world politics; trust in the context of health emergencies; trust in vaccines and vaccination campaigns; trust in primary health programmes; and trust in relation to faith-based medical missions.

This workshop is supported by the Department of Politics, the Centre for Global Health Histories, the Centre for Global Health Policy (Sussex) and the Global Health Working Group of the British International Studies Association.
