Abstract

The Attitudes towards the South African National Defence Force Survey is a nationally representative, cross-sectional survey that was conducted by the Human Sciences Research Council (HSRC) between February and March 2014. The intention of this project was to determine general attitudes towards the South African National Defence Force (SANDF). More specifically the project aimed to evaluate public levels of knowledge of the SANDF, to probe the expected role of the SANDF and to determine confidence and trust in the SANDF. The ultimate aim of the study was to get a national consensus on defence matters in order to eventually inform the people of South African on defence matters.
