Similar to a draft, this process carefully screens men and women within a designated age category to determine eligibility for serving in the Swedish Military. The Russian illegal annexation of Crimea ,the conflict in Ukraine and

the increased threat of nuclear weapons from North Korea are placing pressure on Sweden to provide a more consistent source of military support. Volunteer Effect Military Conscription in Sweden- January 2018 The effect of the recent change to a conscripted military in Sweden may have a domino effect for other nations in Europe and worldwide. The growing tensions around the world are creating a more desperate need for defense that can not always be filled with volunteers. The long term negative effects of drafting members to military service can include decreased levels of graduates of

higher degrees, decreased wages and contributions to the local economy, and increased levels of post traumatic stress disorders and mental illness. Military In Argentina, children are often the focus of the family. In middle and upper class families children are expected to be successful in school, and families sacrifice time and money for the opportunity for children to earn an education. Young adults typically live with their family well into adulthood, as housing can be expensive. The roles of men and women within the family are changing, but traditionally men in Argentina work long hours into the evening to support their family, while women tend to manage household tasks and childcare.

Equal pay and opportunity for women in the workforce remains a problem for Argentinians, and violence against women is also a major concern. FAMILY Public schools in Argentina are free, and attendance is required, though quality education varies greatly by location. Public school teachers are underpaid and often attendance at public schools can be inconsistent due to teacher work strikes. Private or subsidized (partially funded) schools are more reliable, and are attended by middle and upper class families. Some families living

in rural areas cannot afford to send their children to school, as they require their help working in the fields. EDUCATION NORMS Close personal space is considered normal Eye contact or hands on your hips can be considered confrontational Hand gestures are an important part of conversations Individuals are introduced using titles Mate is an herbal tea that is shared among friends or family members Dinner is often served late in the eveningaround 9:00 pm when everyone is home from school and work Argentina has recently become a

country that relies on service industries more than agriculture, though livestock and animal wool, hides and beef are still important contributions to the GDP. The economy of Argentina has been inconsistent in recent decades, and has been vulnerable to inflation and global trends towards recession. Unemployment levels are high in Argentina, and government controls of resources and jobs often make economic problems worse. Literacy rates and life expectancy are lower than most developed countries. The value of Argentinian currency is weak, and many citizens struggle to save Economy

RELIGION The Catholic church is a major influence in the lives of Argentinian people. 92% of the population are Roman Catholics. Even though the church as an institution has significant influence over social norms and traditions, it is not common for Argentinas citizens to attend church regularly. The country has a specified separation of church and state, and freedom to practice and
