Argument

Research on social policies have analysed the increasing role of personalised relationship between street-level bureaucrats and "users", focusing on tensions between values and practices, daily professional practices and adaptation strategies or between the ways in which users understand the service and professionals their engagements.

The principles of fairness and individualisation have acquired greater importance, partly to battle real inequalities and to recognise users’ subjectivities. “Creating trust” in public services and between street-level bureaucrats and users is increasingly sought out. It is at the same time searched and challenged by policies that look for greater performance. But social closeness between professionals and users has an impact on the quality of the relationship and the way in which service is provided, questioning both fairness and equality.

In this panel, we would like to take an in-depth look at relationships of trust within public services both at interpersonal (street-level bureaucrats/users) and organisational levels. What are the social and organisational conditions that allow relationships of trust? How is trust concretely managed and implemented? We are seeking empirically grounded papers that will shine a light on the role, the construction and/or the consequences of relationships of trust in street-level bureaucracies of all public sectors (social, health, education, police, etc.).
