Turkey: Conscientious Objection Bulletin

November - December 2020

(10.01.2021) We, as the Conscientious Objection Association (VR-DER), aim to documen tthe current situation on the right to conscientious objection in Turkey with this bulletin. The Conscientious Objection Bulletin will be published periodically during the year.
In doing so, we hope to be able to provide the flow of information needed in the field. We hope that we will increase public awareness of the right to conscientious objection with the help of bulletins which will include applications to our Association, new declarations of conscientious objection and up-to-date information on the court cases of conscientious objectors.
If you want to get more information about our monitoring work, you can contact us on our
website, social media accounts and dernek(at)vicdaniret.org.
