Abstract. The subject of this paper is a comparative analysis of the social status of intelligence in three selected countries of the former Yugoslavia: Bosnia and Herzegovina (B&H), Montenegro (MNE), and Serbia (SER). The aim of this research is the perception of the impact of certain selected factors on the social status of inteligence in these countries. It starts with the hypothesis that the social status of intelligence in the post-socialist transition process has been permanently deteriorated, mainly due to the unfavorable and synergistic impact of political, economic, institutional, and cultural-educational factors. In this paper, survey method and multiple linear regression method were used to determine the hypothetical perceptions of intellectuals on the social status of intelligence and an impact of basic social factors on it. It was concluded that the hypothesis has been verified and that the respondents in the observed countries in large percentage and sufficiently homogeneously have estimated that the position of intelligence was objectively deteriorating during the observation period.
