Poll Findings Reflect Perceptions of Law and Justice in Timor-Leste
July 22, 2009
Earlier this month, The Asia Foundation’s office in Timor-Leste released the results of a landmark opinion poll conducted over the past year: “Law and Justice in Timor-Leste: A Survey of Citizen Awareness and Attitudes Regarding Law and Justice – 2008.” Designed to inform policymakers about progress in the justice sector and to increase citizens’ access to justice, the Foundation’s second nationwide perceptions poll convened focus groups to compare citizens’ perceptions of law and justice today to their perceptions in the 2004 survey. The surveys are the only records of their kind available for longitudinal comparison of the establishment of rule of law in Timor-Leste. Read the full survey.
