Most countries have conscription
How other countries regulate conscription
The countdown is on: On January 20th, Austria will vote on the future of the armed forces. But what about compulsory military service in other countries? An overview.
How are things going in states with conscription?
- Israel: Army is no longer a symbol of unityNo conscription in most countries In most NATO member states, conscription has been abolished or suspended. The USA and Great Britain made the system change to the professional army a long time ago. There have been no military service in France for eight years. Conscription was also abolished in Germany, Italy and Poland. There are also some countries that are not NATO members but have nevertheless abolished compulsory military service, such as Sweden and Ireland.
How is it going in states without conscription?
- Germany: 30 percent drop out of voluntary service
- The end of conscription: undisputed in Italy
- France: No conscription for 15 years
- Poland: Without money, there is no professional army
- Spain: crisis disheveled the professional army
- Soldier in the USA: A well-paid job in hell
- Canada: The country from which the blue helmets come Big differences in the military budget What distinguishes Austria from all other countries is the size of the military budget. Hardly any other state spends so little on its national defense. The budget of the armed forces is around two billion euros - this corresponds to 0.6 percent of the total economic output (GDP). Sweden spends around twice as much. The Scandinavian country spends seven times as much per soldier, according to figures from the European Defense Agency. Only Ireland lets its army cost as little as Austria does.
The size of the armed forces, however, is in line with the international average. With 16,000 professional soldiers and up to 24,000 basic military servants in one year, Austria can be compared with similarly sized countries.
