In view of the technological progress and political turbulence of our time, many people are asking themselves whether the long-standing institutions of society - business, government, NGOs and the media - will still be able to guide us effectively in the coming years. Answers will be provided in a few days by our Edelman Trust Barometer, which celebrates its 20th anniversary this year.

About the Edelman Trust Barometer

The Edelman Trust Barometer is an annual study on trust in governments, non-governmental organisations (NGOs), business and the media, which was conducted for the 20th time this year. The survey was developed by the market research company Edelman Intelligence and the data collection was carried out by means of 30-minute online interviews. The survey period was between October and November 2019. 33,000 people were surveyed for the Edelman Trust Barometer 2020 in 27 markets, including 6,000 from the informed public (people between 25 and 64 years of age with a university degree, an above-average household income within the top 25 % and intensive media and information consumption).
