          In the sixth phase of the survey (January 2005), a little less than two fifths of the polled from Serbia showed their confidence in the SMAF, which presented the decrease of 19 percent compared to the V phase and even 33,6 percent decrease compared to the I phase. This dramatic trend of decreasing trust in the Army in Serbia comes as a result of many affairs and tragedies, which affected the Army during the research. The situation in Montenegro is different than in Serbia and according to that, a little more than two fifths of the polled showed the confidence in the Army. This institution ranks the third position on the list of the institutions that the public trusts most in both states, while the Church and the school system are ahead of it. The percent of people who consider that reform of the Army should be immediately carried out has significantly increased in the sixth phase of the survey and that was undoubtedly caused by series of unexamined incidents in the SMAF.

          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, VI round),  published by the Centre for Civil-Military Relations. The associates of the CCMR carried out the sixth phase of the survey, within the two-year project "The Serbian and Montenegrin Public on Reform of the Army" in the second half of January 2005. The project is supported by the British government, while the Team of SM & 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 manager 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.
