The Rule of Law in Pakistan: Key Findings from the 2016 Extended General Population Poll & Justice Sector Survey presents select findings from two World Justice Project surveys conducted in five urban centers in Pakistan in May and June 2016. The data derived from both surveys are presented as 11 thematic briefs highlighting a different facet of the rule of law as it is experienced by the population in Pakistan. These briefs touch upon issues of accountability, corruption, fundamental rights, crime, justice – criminal, civil, and informal – as well as the role of women in Pakistani society. Overall, this report represents the voices of over 4,000 people in Pakistan and their experiences with the rule of law in their country.
