Trust as a regulatory strategy

Cherney, Adrian (1997) Trust as a regulatory strategy. Current Issues in Criminal Justice, 9(1), pp. 71-84.


Growing scholarship hypothesises that presupposing trust in another party can actually secure more consistently the type of performance desired, with there being a necessity to build trust responsive mechanisms into a number of arenas due to the particular dynamics of trust relationships that see consistently the achievement of collaborative alternatives. The productive potential of transforming the regulatory environment based upon trust relationships presents the opportunity of securing greater compliance and mutually beneficial outcomes. While there are a number of theoretical and policy concerns with this theorising, it provides scope for identifying options that afford the greatest potential rewards for parties involved.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
