        • A little more than two fifths of the polled from Serbia and almost half of the polled from Montenegro showed their confidence in the SMAF, according to results of the seventh round of the survey. The most important reasons for their confidence result from the opinions that the Army is the main guarantor of peace and security and that it was the protector of the national interests during the last ten years. The mostly indicated reason for mistrust of the respondents in Serbia presents the opinion that the Army is badly educated, equipped and armed, while respondents in Montenegro believe that the SMAF resists changes and reforms in the society. Television is still, for respondents, the most important source of information on military and defence issues, while the daily newspapers are on the second place. These are some of the findings emphasized in the book "The Serbian and Montenegrin Public on Reform of the Army" (The results of the survey, VII round), published by the Centre for Civil-Military Relations (CCMR). The associates of the CCMR carried out the seventh, last, phase of the survey within the two-year project "The Serbian and Montenegrin Public on Reform of the Army" in the end of March and beginning of April 2005. The British government supports the project, while the Team of Strategic Marketing & Media Research Institute from Belgrade carried out the poll in field and statistically processed the data.

          The publication contains following chapters: How well-informed the citizens are on reform of the Army, Jasmina Glišić, M.A., assistant at the Faculty of Political Sciences, University in Belgrade; Views of the citizens on reforms of the Army, Professor Miroslav Hadžić, Faculty of Political Sciences, University in Belgrade and psychologist Zorana Atanasović, associate in the CCMR; The citizens’ expectations of reforms of the Army, Milorad Timotić, M.A., project coordinator in the Centre for Civil-Military Relations; Media reporting on defence and the Army - Sixth round, Jovanka Matić, M.A., researcher from the Institute for Social Sciences.
