Launching of Regional Public Opinion Poll Survey Report

07 Mar

“Attitudes towards LGBTIQ+ people in the Western Balkans. Public opinion in Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo, Montenegro, North Macedonia, and Serbia.” 

29 March, 14:00-16:00 CET, Zoom Platform

In December 2022, ERA – LGBTI Equal Rights Association for the Western Balkans and Turkey, in partnership with IPSOS Strategic Marketing and with the support of the European Commission and the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, conducted an opinion poll on LGBTIQ+ rights with the general population in Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo, Montenegro, North Macedonia, and Serbia, 

The data was collected from 20 December 2022 until 12 January 2023 and targeted adult persons 18+. The sample was collected via telephone as well as online. The survey aimed to understand public attitudes in the Western Balkans region, with a particular focus on the following: 

  • Personal experience, attitudes, and prejudices toward the LGBTIQ+ population
  • Public attitudes towards rights of LGBTIIQ+ persons
  • Public attitudes and opinions on pride parades
  • Attitudes towards LGBTIQ+ people and political choice 

One of the most interesting aspects of this public opinion poll is that we can compare the general public’s attitudes in 2015 to those in 2022-2023. We managed to ask many of the same questions that were asked to the public in 2015. The findings are most revealing of a social change in the Western Balkans region. 

If you are keen to learn more about the data of this report and the comparison of attitudes between 2015 to 2023, we encourage you to register for this event and to join us via Zoom on 29 March, 14:00-16:00 CET

The event will host a panel of regional and international guests and present the report’s data and a comparative analysis with the findings of the 2015 poll.
