Abstract:The Bachelor thesis explores the process behind the decision to suspend compulsory military service in Germany. The guiding research question is: Why was the decision to suspend compulsory military service in Germany successful? Termination is seen as a process and therefore the question is answered by the help of termination literature and literature about the political process as such. A new theoretical framework is developed out of the existing literature on termination and the policy process. The thematic analysis is made with secondary qualitative data, derived from reports and newspaper articles. The thesis concludes that the termination was successful because none of the identified obstacles were big enough to stop the termination process. The external political environment, with its actors, prevailing beliefs and circumstances influenced the termination attempt positively. Keywords: policy termination, political process, compulsory military service (Wehrpflicht), German
