Thoughts and Views of the Ukrainian Population on Judicial Reform: September 2018

Presentation

From September 12 to 24, 2018, the Kyiv International Institute of Sociology (KIIS) conducted an all-Ukrainian public opinion polling commissioned by the client. By the method of personal interviewing, 2011 respondents who live in 110 settlements of all regions of Ukraine (except Crimea) were polled by a 4-step stochastic sample that is representative for the population of Ukraine under the age of 18.

In Luhansk and Donetsk regions, the poll was conducted only on the territory controlled by the Ukrainian authorities.

The statistical sampling error (with a probability of 0.95 and a design effect of 1.5) does not exceed: 3.3% for indicators close to 50%, 2.8% - for indicators close to 25%, 2.0% - for indicators close to 10%, 1.4% - for indicators close to 5%.

The main results of the survey

Eurointegration strivings of the Ukrainian population and the priority of judicial reform after the Revolution of Dignity

  • In the case of a referendum on EU membership, 47.9% of the country's population would vote "for", 25.1% would vote "against", and 11.5% would abstain and not vote. Another 15.5% of the respondents haven’t decided yet or refused to answer the question. Thus, 65.7% of Ukrainians who would have participated in the referendum would vote for joining the European Union.
  • To the question "Was the reform of Judicial System needed after the Revolution of Dignity in 2013-14?" 40.5% of respondents said that "yes, and this was one of the most urgent tasks." Another 35.2% of respondents chose the option "yes, but this was not the most important task / were other, more relevant reforms." The share of those who believe that there was no need for the reform - 4.6%. Another 19.7% of the respondents haven't decided or refused to answer the question.

 

Trust in the courts of Ukraine

  • o The Ukrainian courts are more likely or completely trusted by 12.3% of Ukrainians, and not trusted - 78.5%. Another 9.2% of respondents did not determine their opinion, or refused to answer.
