About publication

Publishing year: 2021

A public opinion poll on the knowledge and attitudes of Montenegrin citizens about warcrimes and transitional justice was conducted in order to obtain annual cross-sectional data. The data were compared, in the part of the same questions, with last year’s similar survey conducted by the Centre for Civic Education (CCE). Additionally, for the first time, questions were introduced that shed light on the perceptions of citizens about the attitude of the judiciary and certain state institutions towards war crimes.

Such regular monitoring of the public’s knowledge and attitudes also provides useful insight into the effects of the work of various social actors in the process of dealing with the past. Also, in this manner, an empirical base is obtained concerning key issues that marked the political and social life in the past year, concerning this process, and the impact it had on society.

The publication “Transitional justice through the eyes of citizens of Montenegro” is part of the project “Dealing with the Past for the Future”, implemented by the CCE with the support of the US Government, through the State Department’s Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs (INL).
