For a good army one needs three things the right EQUIPMENT, sufficient TRAINING, and the right number and quality of PERSONNEL. In my address I will tell you something about the recruitment and selection of personnel in the Royal Netherlands Army after the suspension of conscription. I have divided what I am going to say to you in the next 30 minutes into three parts First of all, I briefly want to describe the historical development that resulted in conscription in the Netherlands being abolished in 1996 after almost 200 years. Secondly, I shall be looking at a number of changes that have occurred in the recruitment and selection of regular military personnel. Thirdly, I shall be pointing out a number of striking differences between the selection procedures required for conscripts and for recruiting regulars.
