This autumn the Conscientious Objection Association (Vicdani Ret Derneği) in Istanbul has launched a new project.

We invite you to participate in a webinar where we will discuss:
The general situation of conscientious objectors in Turkey today,
The project of the Conscientious Objection Association,
How to develop and strengthen the campaign for COs.
