What is trust? Comparing european and turkish students’ perceptions
This study aims to enhance the understanding of trust which seems to be a confusing subject. Although trust seems to be a more related topic with psychology or sociology literature, it has also turned to be a growing subject in organizational research. In this research, the notion of trust that is always mentioned as an “intangible”, “confusing”, and “hard to define” is explored. Within this endeavor, two focus groups which have aimed to reveal students’ perception about trust and its importance is presented. One of these focus groups is conducted with Turkish students and the other one is conducted with European students. Both of the groups consist of Erasmus students who have come to Denmark as exchange students to study for a term.
