Full text of the report (Adobe PDF, 2.89 MB)

In September 2009 a report, entitled ‘Review of Need: Indicators of Public Confidence in Criminal Justice for Policy Assessment’ came out, published by the European Institute for Crime Prevention and Control, Affiliated with the United Nations (HEUNI). The publication is the first volume of the working papers of the EUROJUSTIS project, designed to provide EU institutions and Member States with new indicators for assessing public confidence in justice. It is a result of the implementation of one of the project’s specific objectives: to assess the perceived need for European social indicators of public confidence in justice for policy assessment and to examine the state of current tools. The working paper was jointly prepared and edited by experts from the Law Program of the Center for the Study of Democracy and from HEUNI, since the Center was leading the project partners’ effort for needs assessment.

The publication contains three parts. The first part contains a joint report on the review of importance of public confidence as a tool for policy assessment in the countries participating in EUROJUSTIS, carried out by interviewing experts such as scientists, criminal justice managers and government officials. The second part comprises country reviews on literature and current indicators of confidence in justice and fear of crime. The third part of the report is a review on current indicators of public confidence on a supra-national level, assessing the measurement of confidence in justice in international initiatives such as the International Crime Victimisation Survey and the European Social Survey.
