Goal 16: 4. Main Eurostat Indicators

Key trends in Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions in Europe show the following evidence (Eurostat Report, pp. 291 and ss):

  • The EU has become a safer place to live;
  • There is a fear of victimisation paradox, with objective and subjective measures of physical insecurity that do not match;
  • Men are more likely to die from homicide, while women are more likely to be victims of physical or sexual violence in their homes;
  • More than half of the EU population consider the justice system to be sufficiently independent;
  • Younger and higher-educated people, as well as those who have not been to court, have a better perception of the justice system’s independence;
  • EU Member States are among the least corrupt countries in the world;
  • Globally, the CPI reports a high corruption burden in more than two-thirds of countries.
