More than half of conscripts who seek civil service over military service do so for practical reasons that include gaining work experience, normal working hours and the opportunity to reside in their own homes, says a research by the Ministry of Employment and the Economy.
No more than a third of conscripts choose civil service due to beliefs. Under Finnish law, civil service requires a written declaration of conviction, based on belief.
The study shows that the desire to study or work in civil service is not as significant as practical reasons.
Military service is shunned, especially for the group discipline, the lack of privacy and the regulated barracks life, and its difference from normal everyday life.
The research into the reasoning behind conscripts choosing civil service was carried out by the Kymenlaakso University of Applied Sciences.
More than 2600 respondents participated in the study.
