Political trust is an essential ingredient for the functioning of democracies. Cultural theory hypothesizes that trust in political institutions originates in deeply rooted and long-standing cultural norms, which are transmitted through early-life socialization and thus are exogenous to political institutions. By contrast, institutional theory views political trust as a direct consequence of institutional performance. This paper studies political trust in Europe within a quasi-experimental framework of migration. Results using European Social Survey data by itself or merged with the Integrated Values Surveys suggest that Russian-born migrants exposed to Western European institutions have higher probability of political trust than Russian-born migrants in Eastern Europe.
