1 Conscription

conscription exists

Ever since achieving independence in 1956 Tunisia has had conscription. [3] [11] [1]

According to art. 15 of the 1987 constitution, "the defence of the fatherland and its territorial integrity is a sacred duty of every citizen". [10]

The present legal basis is not quite clear.

Compulsory military service is prescribed by the 31 May 1967 Military Service Law (Act no. 67-19), and the 19 February 1975 National Service Law (Act no. 75-8).
