For the police, work effectiveness or fairness in encounters is especially important to ensure institutional trust and procedural fairness. Emphasizing social trust and criminal victimization, Silvia Staubli offers an analysis of attitudes toward the police in Eastern and Western Europe, addressing sociology, political science, criminology, and social anthropology equally. The study provides insight on how public opinion toward institutions is shaped.
