The Importance Of Trust In ‘Transitional’ Europe. The Case Of The Textile Bazaars In Łódź (Poland)




This contribution will address the issue of trust (and distrust) in a period of (Central) European transition. This will be illustrated using the example of the bazaars in the greater Łódź region. As the bazaar trade did and does play an important role in the adaptation necessary in a period of transition, they are used as a proxy for the post-socialist societies in the 1990s and the first decade of the twentieth century. The role of trust, especially, in the current spatial or horizontal outreach will be discussed.
