This book examines the right to conscientious objection to military service in international human rights law. Since the 1950s, this subject has excited the interest of both non-governmental and inter-governmental organizations in a variety of contexts. The book begins with an exploration of the concept of conscience and its evolution with a view toward understanding the meaning and potential scope of the right to conscientious objection from a legal perspective. It then investigates the right to conscientious objection as a legitimate exercise of freedom of thought, conscience, and religion. Ozgur Heval Cinar analyzes human rights law at both the international and regional level, examining UN, European, and inter-American mechanisms.
