Abstract [en]

Mainly due to the recent years of large inflow of immigrants to Europe, and not least Sweden, the debate of ethnic diversity has become more intense, and thus so has the debate of social cohesion and social capital. Social trust is part of our social capital, and has also been of interest for several researchers over the years. The development of the literature on trust first had focus on the economic and democratic benefits of trust, but has now taken a turn towards focusing more on the negative effects of ethnic diversity in societies. My research show that ethnic diversity in Uppsala does not directly affect the levels social trust in Uppsala. There are other factors, both in the society at large and personal factors that explain the relation between having another ethnic background than Swedish and trust.
