Civic Empowerment Index 2009

A study of Lithuanian society’s Civic Empowerment Index was carried out for a third time in 2009, and the same study for teachers was carried out for the second time. The goal of the Civic Empowerment Index is to determine changes in Lithuanian residents’ and teachers’ interest in public affairs, political and civic participation, potential for civic engagement, attitudes towards civic power, and the social climate for civic action. The annual survey reveals the development of the Lithuanian civil society, and allows for the assessment of civic life, drawing attention to challenges in its development.
