War-time effects on trust in state institutions are particularly relevant for political stability in the aftermath of violent conflict. If people distrust the state, they are less likely to endorse reform plans, will be less inclined to comply with state rules and regulations, and may uphold support for challengers of state authority. Our paper contributes to the understanding of the role of violence for trust in the national government. We use high-quality, geo-referenced survey data, joined with village-level information on civil war casualties, to estimate the effects of exposure to violence on political trust in Nepal. We find that exposure to violence matters for reducing trust in the national government. This association seems to be mainly driven by effects of violence at the outbreak of the conflict as well as at the end of the civil war period under investigation. These findings shed new light on the complex associations between exposure to violence and political trust.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:creator>De Juan, Alexander</dc:creator> <dc:date rdf:datatype="">2016-02-22T09:40:37Z</dc:date> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:issued>2016</dcterms:issued> <dcterms:title>Civil war violence and political trust : Microlevel evidence from Nepal</dcterms:title> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2016-02-22T09:40:37Z</dcterms:available> <dc:creator>Pierskalla, Jan Henryk</dc:creator> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
