For a sixth year, GLOBSEC Trends 2021 report provides unique insight into public attitudes towards the functioning of democracy, proneness to belief in conspiracy theories and trust in institutions, mainstream media and authorities in ten Central and Eastern European countries: Austria, Bulgaria, Czechia, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Romania and Slovakia.

This summary focuses specifically on Romania and has been developed in cooperation with the Romanian partner in the project, Funky Citizens.
