This article analyzes the role of trust relationships in the system of surveillance created for the observation and control of non-white anti-colonialists active in early twentieth-century Europe. It focuses on three different social settings. The article first analyzes the authorities’ attempts to gain the trust of people from the colonies, and the strategies that anti-colonialists developed against state intrusion. Second, the development and effect of internal distrust in anti-colonialist groups is studied. The final part looks at the role of trust in the ambiguous and complex relationship between non-European police informants and their white superiors.
