�Do cooperative enterprises create social trust?

Fabio Sabatini (), Francesca Modena () and Ermanno Tortia ()

No 1243, Euricse Working Papers from Euricse (European Research Institute on Cooperative and Social Enterprises)

Abstract: This paper contributes to the literature by carrying out the first empirical investigation into the role of different types of enterprises in the creation of social trust. Drawing on a unique dataset collected through the administration of a questionnaire to a representative sample of the population of the Italian Province of Trento in March 2011, we find that cooperatives are the only type of enterprise where the work environment fosters the social trust of workers.
