On 13 January, the NATO Defense College Research Division and Academic Operations Division co-hosted Dr. Johan Österberg, Lecturer at the Swedish Defence University, and Dr. Tibor Szvircsev Tresch, Head of Military Sociology at the Military Academy at ETH Zurich, for a joint presentation of their recent research on military conscription in Europe.

Dr. Österberg and Dr Szvircsev Tresch conducted a cross-national survey that asked conscripts in six European countries (Estonia, Finland, Lithuania, Norway, Sweden and Switzerland) about their attitudes towards conscription, national defence, and other related issues. In the discussion that followed, participants examined the past, present, and potential future of conscription in Europe, critically debating the benefits and disadvantages related to new models of force-manning in European security.
