Serbia-Montenegro confronted a formidable series of political level security sector reform challenges in October 2000. The practices and policies of the Miloševic´-era in relation to the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia security sector had a lasting impact on security sector reform in Serbia-Montenegro. They left a legacy of legislative ambiguity, organisational fragmentation, conservatism, partification and corruption that have hampered the implementation of democratic reforms across the Army, police and intelligence agencies. Between 2000 and 2003, defence and security policy planning and implementation processes in Serbia-Montenegro were effectively frozen by the pressing first generation reform challenges of the time. Between 2000 and 2006, security sector reform at the political level in Serbia-Montenegro was dominated by the fundamental first generation challenges of institutional and legislative restructuring and reaffirming civilian control over the security sector. Despite attempts to suppress it, civil-society in Serbia and in Belgrade remained dynamic and vibrant during the Miloševic´ period.
