Belarus National Poll 2019: Public Opinion Does Not Change

The memo presents initial findings from a national public opinion poll conducted by MIA Research in August-September 2019 with the representative sample size of 1,507 respondents and margin of error ± 3%. The interviews were face-to-face. The survey was commissioned by Pact under the USAID/BRAMA Activity.

Key findings:

  • Belarusians’ understanding of their role vis-à-vis the state or attitudes towards reforms remain virtually the same;
  • Awareness of NGOs remains low (61% of Belarusians are not aware of any NGO activity), which renders the issue of trust to NGOs hardly relevant;
  • Poor awareness of NGOs continues to affect the level of civic participation (3%);
  • Media literacy of Belarusians remains low (only 9% always verify the news);
  • Belarusians do not consider gender inequality as an actual problem (39%);
  • Belarusians want to live in an independent state (43%).
