Abstract
This essay examines the development of social trust among Swedish youth between the period of 1996-2016. Identifying a lack of research done in the area, targeting trust building of the particular age group, the study aims to cover parts of that gap.

Analysing data from the national surveys of ’SOM-institutet’ between 1996-2016, the study uses the statistical method of multiple regression analysis to determine the accuracy of the hypotheses. The results indicate that both civic engagement and institutional trust have positive effects on social trust building among youth. However, the causal effects of the primary variables on the observed trust decrease remain somewhat ambiguous. (Less)
