What We Do
PEriTiA brings together philosophers, social and natural scientists, policy experts, ethicists, psychologists, media specialists and civil society organisations to conduct a comprehensive multi-disciplinary investigation of trust in and the trustworthiness of policy related expert opinion.
The design of the PEriTiA project involves three stages: Theoretical, Empirical and Ameliorative. The goal is to illuminate a topic that has been the subject of much political commentary and media debate in recent years.
