Conscientious Objectors In Turkey Need Your Support to Continue Their Struggle

Newsletter March 2024

(11.03.2024) We are writing you once again inform you about our Conscientious Objection Watch donation campaign and ask for your support.

An overview

(06.02.2024) All male Turkish citizens are subject to compulsory military service, which in Turkey applies indefinitely, even though the law limits the age of military service from 20 to 41 years (Art.3a) (1). They are often unaware of the options for avoiding military service. Here we want to present the current status as of 2024. The conditions for replacement payment and deferment differ depending on whether you live in Turkey or abroad.
