In 2013, PRI commissioned a detailed survey of public opinion about crime, punishment and the death penalty in Belarus.Market researchers, Satio, conducted the survey, interviewing 1,000 participants. The results show that opinions around capital punishment are more varied and nuanced than is often stated, while public attitudes about crime in general are strongly affected by respondents’ social position, background and emotions.
