4. Legitimacy and Trust in European Countries: Macro-structural Explanation of Changes, 2002–2012
In this chapter we empirically examine the relationships between legitimacy, on one hand, and main macro-level and micro-level variables, on the other, in modern European democracies.

We recognize that in Europe both types of trust are conditioned by economic and political factors.
