Dr. Lawrence McKay is a Research Fellow for TrustGov, an ESRC-funded project which explores political trust around the world – its causes, consequences and patterns.

In his position, starting in August 2020, he is the project lead in the research area of trust and geography. Among other factors, TrustGov seeks to determine how far trust in political institutions varies by place – such as among nations, regions within a country, and among rural and urban communities.
