Cooperation is the fundamental underpinning of multi-agent systems, allowing agents to interact to achieve their goals. However, agents must manage the risk associated with interacting with others who have different objectives, or who may fail to fulfill their commitments. In this paper, we consider the role of trust and norms in a motivation-based view of agency. Motivations provide a means for representing and reasoning about overall objectives, trust offers a mechanism for modeling and reasoning about reliability, honesty, etc, and norms provide a framework within which to apply them.
