Abolished in 2011 – the majority of Germans are in favor of conscription


A survey in Germany found that more than half of respondents were in favor of reintroducing military conscription, which was abolished in 2011. The reason for this lies in the security policy challenges.

According to the survey conducted for the magazine “Focus”, the approval rating increases as the respondent ages. 32 percent are against mandatory military service.

49 percent of 18 to 29 year olds spoke out against mandatory military service. However, among older people, approval for this is between 62 and 65 percent.

Pistorius suggests “Swedish model”.
Shortly before Christmas, German Defense Minister Boris Pistorius (SPD) proposed conscription based on the “Swedish model”. All young women and men are gathered there, but only a few of them end up performing basic military service. Other politicians also seemed open to the reintroduction of military conscription.

In mid-2011, military service was suspended in Germany. However, the legal basis for this remains.
