SANDOVAL, Mario. Distrust in young people: substrate of social distress. Ultima décad. [online]. 2012, vol.20, n.36, pp.43-70. ISSN 0718-2236.

The central hypothesis developed in this article is that the distrust of young people in others, and especially distrust of institutions, is the bedrock of social unrest that has been expressed in recent times on the streets of Chile and beyond national borders. Such discomfort is being articulated in an international youth movement called the «outraged». This article works with the partial results of the investigation «linkages between construction and deconstruction of social cohesion and confidence in young students in secondary education: guidelines for strengthening democracy», funded by Fondecyt.

Keywords : trust; youth; democracy.
