          "Members of the Army, as well as its civilian commanders, should be satisfied with the confidence that they currently have from the citizens (respondents) of Serbia and Montenegro. Setting aside the issue of whether and to what extent this is a product of their new, different and/or reform oriented - initiatives, or rather, whether and to what extent is this acquired (maintained) confidence a product of the parallel effects of inertia (stereotypes and heritage) and deep, socio-political crisis and crisis of the value system that has spread over both member states and their institutions. Data, therefore, shows that the Army, in September 2004 (V round) won the confidence of 57.2% of the respondents in Serbia and 44.9% in Montenegro.  

          The associates of the CCMR carried out the fifth phase of the survey, within the two-year project "The Serbian and Montenegrin Public on Reform of the Army" in mid September 2004. For this purpose, research methods were used to assess, process and interpret the views of the Serbian and Montenegrin citizens on reform of the Army. Also, the status of military reform in leading media in Serbia and Montenegro was researched. The project is supported by the government of Great Britain, while the Team of SM & Media Research Institute from Belgrade carried out the poll in field and statistically processed the data.

          The main findings of the fifth phase of the survey and media monitoring were published in the CCMR's new edition, which contains following chapters: How Informed are the Citizens on the Army - Jasmina Glišić, M.A., Assistant at the Faculty of Political Science, University in Belgrade, Situation in the Army - Professor Dr. Miroslav Hadžić, the Faculty of Political Science, University in Belgrade and Zorana Atanasović, psychologist and assistant in the CCMR; The citizens’ expectations of reforms of the Army - Milorad Timotić, M.A., secretary general of the Centre for Civil-Military Relations; Media reporting on defence and the Army - Fifth round, Jovanka Matić, M.A., research fellow from the Institute for Social Sciences.
