          "The Army still keeps the high position on the list of the trusted institutions. The SCG citizens have more confidence in Church only. It can be noticed, however, that the trend of gradual decrease of the trust in the Army is continued. This trend, however, is only the additional confirmation of the total decrease of public confidence in all social institution. Within the projection of further development of the Army, the greatest number of the respondents emphasised its reduction and modernisation, according to the capabilities of the society. Most of the polled - about two fifths - think the religious rituals should be performed only out of the military barracks and almost as many think the Army should not deal with the religious issues".

          The associates of the Centre for Civil-Military Relations carried out the third phase of the survey, within the one-year project "THE SERBIAN AND MONTENEGRIN PUBLIC ON REFORM OF THE ARMY", in the period January 29-February 5th, 2004. For this purpose, the views of the citizens of Serbia and Montenegro on numerous aspects and dimensions of the reform of the Serbian and Montenegrin Armed Forces were collected, processed and interpreted. The view to the reforms of the Army, given by the main media in Serbia and Montenegro was also researched. The main results of the third round of the research contain the 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; The citizens’ expectations of reforms of the Army, Milorad Timotić, M.A., general secretary of the Centre for Civil-Military Relations; Media reporting on defence and the Army, Jovanka Matić, M.A., researcher from the Institute for Social Sciences. The project is supported by the British government.
