Conscription in Serbia

Wikipedia open wikipedia design.

As of 1 January, 2011, Serbia no longer practises mandatory military service. Prior to this, mandatory military service lasted 6 months for men. Conscientious objectors could however opt for 9 months of civil service instead.

On 15 December, 2010, the National Assembly voted to suspend mandatory military service. The decision fully came into force on January 1, 2011.[1]

From 10–17 December, 2016, sociologist Srećko Mihailović conducted a nationwide survey with a sample size of 1,200 adults on whether Serbia should return conscription, with the results being that 75% of respondents supported a return of conscription in Serbia.[2]

In August 2018, President Aleksandar Vučić said the country was considering the idea of reintroducing conscription from 2020, to help improve the combat readiness of the Serbian Army.[3]
