The Federal Ministry of Justice has published a follow up study entitled "Confidence in the Austrian Justice 2013" by Fr.MMag.Dr.Sophie Karmasin.
The aim of the study, a follow up to the 20111 study, was to analyse and depict the Austrian population’s view of the Austrian justice system and to assess people’s changes of attitudes towards the justice system since the end of 2011.
In comparison to the original study in 2011 there has been some positive attitude changes in certain areas of justice.
For example: There has been a slight increase in trust and confidence – 72 per cent of the population said the currently had trust in the Austrian judiciary.
Women have more trust in the judiciary than men – 75% of women said they had confidence in it where as just less than 65% of men said the same.
The free consolation at the district courts was perceived as very positive by those questioned.
The Justice system was regarded as more competent, more reliable, well prepared and less corruptible than in 2011.
On the whole the measures implemented over the last 1-2 years show that there has been an improvement in the judiciary's image and the changes are showing their effects.
Beatrix Karl, Austrian Justice Minister, also said she was very happy with the results of the study, which cost an estimated 30,000 Euro, but said it was not enough now to just sit back and rest on their laurels – quite the opposite – she said she wants to continue to work on improving the positive image for the Austrian Justice System.
