December 8, 2014

It doesn’t always have to be gloom in this blog:  Petras Vaida, from Vilnius, reports on 8 December 2014 that a survey shows that more than half Lithuanians would know where to address in case they think their rights were violated (against 27,9% of respondents  in 2012.)

Each year the Seimas Ombudsmen ask Lithuanians whether they have enough information about the human rights defenders who may help them in case their rights are violated in municipal and governmental institutions. This year’s survey based showed that fifty-four% of respondents would know where to request help in case their rights were violated, including 42% who would address the Seimas Ombudsmen. The researchers observed that younger, more educated, urban and richer respondents knew better where to address in case their rights were violated.
