This study examines Turkey's non-recognition of the right to conscientious objection to military service and locates this non-recognition within the context of international human rights law - specifically United Nations and European Union system. It asks: What are Turkey's obligations under international human rights laws? To what extent does Turkish national law comply with these obligations? What changes would need to be made to Turkey's domestic law in order to achieve full compliance?
