Politics and Public Trust

These questions help us understand if participants feel trust in or represented by their current political system.

These questions are related to the political system at the national level. This section seeks to understand whether respondents from diverse groups in the country study feel represented in their current political system. The section includes questions on the importance of diversity and inclusion as political issues, satisfaction with democracy and representation in political parties.

This set of questions also refers to trust in public institutions among diversity groups. These questions complement the findings in political and social inequality sections. Responses from this section are also indicative of the state’s ability to implement pluralism through policies and practices.

While most questions of the Pluralism Perceptions Survey help inform indicators in Dimension 5: Intergroup Relations and Belonging, these questions are specifically relevant to Indicator 7: Political Parties and Indicator 11: Political Inequalities.
