Abstrakt CZ: management konfliktů se zabývá budováním důvěry a rolí organizací občanské společnosti při budování důvěry v konfliktních společnostech. Budování důvěry se však také věnuje sociologie důvěry. Článek se zabývá tím, čím by sociologie důvěry mohla přispět k výzkumu organizací občanské společnosti a jejich role při budování důvěry v konfliktních společnostech.
Abstrakt EN: Conflict management scholars as well as practitioners are optimistic about the confidence building capacity of CSOs, especially in cases of divided conflict-prone societies. They believe that activities of CSOs in various issue areas across the society create bridges between former enemies, remove prejudices and can or merely help create trust between them. And trust is believed to be basic stepping stone to a peaceful, working and democratic society. This optimism dominates today?s conflict management and creates a mainstream approach. What the article set out to show is the idea that our optimism about confidence building capacities of CSOs is not based on satisfactory evidence. Conflict management scholars have no clear indication and evidence about such capacities. We also have horribly little information about the circumstances in which CSOs can work as confidence builders. This article has tried to fill the gap and looking outside the conflict management field ? particularly into sociology of trust ? it tried to shed more light on the issue. As was shown, sociology of trust, especially those, who carried out cross-national multilevel analysis, are sceptical about the confidence building role of civil society organisations and to the impact of associational life on the level of trust. The sociological testing indicates that CSOs work together with other factors and all these factors together have an influence on level of trust or distrust. To critically evaluate the CSOs? confidence building capacity, it can be said that CSOs can positively influence the ?other factors? which were correlated with trust: CSOs can work for income equality, good governance, democratization as well as for well-being and education, but CSOs cannot work for all factors.
