Does mass inter-ethnic violence permanently reduce inter-ethnic trust, or does inter-ethnic trust (fully) recover? And, if so, what is driving the recovery process?
I am currently working on these questions together with Marijke Verpoorten. In doing so, we are mapping changes in the self-reported levels of inter- and intra-ethnic trust on a scale from -5 (lowest) to +5 (highest).
The animations below capture these changes over time for the case of Burundi (inter-ethnic trust) and Rwanda (comparing intra-ethnic with inter-ethnic trust).
More info can be found in a working paper
