Abstract

This article examines levels of interest and trust among the public in relation to Northern Ireland’s newly established political institutions and actors, through an analysis of the results of the 2007 Northern Ireland Life and Times Survey (NILT). It is important to reveal the specific groups of people with the highest levels of political disenchantment, particularly in the context of the longerterm stability of the Northern Ireland Assembly and Executive since the willingness of the electorate to have faith and trust in the workability of these political institutions and in the various political actors in whose custody they lie is considered vital.
