Issue 18 of our CO-Update e-newsletter has a lot of legal developments to report: good news about a "friendly settlement" regarding the case of a conscientious objector from Bolivia, which includes the commitment of the Bolivian government to introduce a law on conscientious objection, and another decision in favour of Turkish antimilitarist activists.

However, we also have to report on negative developments, especially from Eastern Europe - see our reports from Russia and Armenia.

Please take a note of our upcoming events (below), and contact the WRI office in case you have any further questions.
