Abstract

This book explores the issue of trust in relation to the British state under New Labour. The issue of trust was raised most vividly around foreign policy matters, particularly Britain’s role in the invasion of Iraq and the subsequent debate about the validity or otherwise of the intelligence material. From this starting point the stewardship of New Labour is evaluated in terms of the notion of active citizenship and from the perspective of writers working in a range of agencies and policy areas, including health, community development, social security and criminal justice.
