Polling Memo: Stable Society? CSO Awareness has Risen, Participation Remains Low
For the second consecutive year, Pact has released findings from its national survey. Conducted by the Independent Institute of Socio-Economic and Political Studies (IISEPS) the polling examines Belarusians’ attitudes towards civil society under four categories, including trust in public institutions; citizens’ awareness of civil society organizations (CSOs); the level of citizens’ involvement in civil society activities; and the level of citizens overall public/social activism. The fieldwork has place in September each year from 2012 until 2015, the sample size is the same for all four years, and interviews are face-to-face, conducted in respondents’ homes.
