Re-Conceptualization of Political Trust in Relation to Justice

Hazal Altunkulp Çoban

This study seeks to contribute to the conceptualization of political trust by uncovering its moral and affective dimensions, particularly its relationship with justice. In the current atmosphere of politics, political trust becomes a complex concept, especially in the face of injustices. Despite extensive discussions on trust and justice in the literature, the interplay between them within the political context remains underexplored. While analytic philosophy delves into a multifaceted exploration of trust, political science often limits its perspective to a performance evaluation grounded in rational calculations and interests. The deficiency in analytic philosophy lies in its failure to adequately address the socio-political dimension of trust, as it adopts a predominantly individualistic viewpoint that neglects politically significant aspects, including justice. The prevailing trend in political science tends to downplay the affective and moral facets of trust. This study endeavours to bridge this gap by re-evaluating our approach to political trust, emphasizing its importance and exploring its determinants, particularly in connection to justice. The argument posits that, in addition to and beyond rational evaluations in politics, a comprehensive understanding of political trust and its relationship to justice necessitates an examination of the affective and moral components, underlying perceptions of trust and justice in real political and social contexts.

Adaletle İlişkili Olarak Siyasi Güvenin Yeniden Kavramsallaştırılması

Hazal Altunkulp Çoban

Bu çalışma, siyasal güvenin özellikle adaletle ilişkili olan ahlaki ve duygusal boyutlarını ortaya çıkararak siyasal güvenin kavramsallaştırılmasına katkıda bulunmayı amaçlamaktadır. Mevcut siyasi atmosferin oluşturduğu adaletsizlikler karşısında siyasal güven karmaşık bir kavram haline gelmiştir. Literatürde güven ve adalet üzerine yapılan geniş tartışmalara rağmen, bunların siyasi bağlamdaki etkileşimi üzerinde henüz yeterli çalışma bulunmamaktadır. Analitik felsefe, güven konusu çok boyutlu olarak incelemekte, ancak siyaset bilimi genellikle perspektifini rasyonel hesaplamalara ve çıkarlara dayalı bir performans değerlendirmesine sınırlamaktadır. Analitik felsefenin eksikliği, özellikle adalet dahil olmak üzere politik açıdan önemli yönleri ihmal eden, bireyci bir bakış açısı benimsemesi nedeniyle siyasal güvenin sosyo-politik boyutuna yeterince odaklanmamasında yatar. Öte yandan, siyaset bilimindeki yaygın eğilim, güvenin duygusal ve ahlaki yönlerini göz ardı etmektedir. Bu çalışma, siyasal güvene yaklaşımımızı, önemini ve adalet açısından belirleyici faktörlerini yeniden değerlendirerek bu boşluğu doldurmayı amaçlamaktadır. Siyasette rasyonel değerlendirmelerin yanı sıra, güven ve adalet algılarının duygusal ve ahlaki bileşenleri üzerinden değerlendirilmesinin, siyasal güveni ve onun adaletle olan ilişkisini gerçek siyasi ve sosyal koşulları anlamak açısından önemli olduğu savunulmaktadır.
