Space, Trust, and Communal Action: Results from Field Experiments in Southeast Asia
25 Pages Posted: 14 Sep 2006
This paper examines the spatial dimensions of trust in two Southeast Asian cities using data from both household surveys and field experiments conducted in low-income communities. The results suggest that space and location are important to understanding communal action and trust in developing countries. Not surprisingly, space matters in different ways depending on culture, history and the political-economy of a particular country or city.
