The Rule of Law in Pakistan: Key Findings from the 2017 Extended General Population Poll & Justice Sector Survey

Strengthening the rule of law is an important objective for governments, donors, and civil society organizations around the world. To be effective, however, strengthening the rule of law requires clarity about the fundamental features of the rule of law as well as an adequate basis for its evaluation and measurement. This report presents select findings from two World Justice Project surveys: the General Population Poll, conducted in Pakistan in August and September 2017, and the Pakistan Justice Sector Survey, conducted in Pakistan in November and December 2017.

The General Population Poll was conducted through face-to-face interviews in 2,010 households distributed proportionately across the five urban areas of Faisalabad, Karachi, Lahore, Peshawar, and Quetta. This poll was designed to capture data on the experiences and perceptions of ordinary people on a variety of themes related to the rule of law, including government accountability, bribery and corruption, crime, and access to justice. The Justice Sector Survey polled 2,010 people using the same methodology as the General Population Poll and was designed to capture data on Pakistanis’ views and experiences related to dispute resolution, legal awareness, legal identity, household dynamics, and gender issues.

Overall, this report represents the voices of over 4,000 people in Pakistan and their experiences with the rule of law in their country.
