Trust and Mistrust in the Caucasus

Dr. Anar Valiyev, Associate Dean of Academic Affairs at the Azerbaijan Diplomatic Academy and Khayala Mustafayeva, Research Associate at the Caucasus Research Resource Center (CRRC), examine the level of trust afforded to political institutions in Azerbaijan, Georgia and Armenia. The authors outline that the level of trust in the executive branch and specifically to the president is the highest in Azerbaijan, followed by Georgia and Armenia. Furthermore, the data shows that the legislative and judicial branches are also highly trusted in Azerbaijan, although not to the same extent as the executive.
