Forces Watch

ForcesWatch's work includes raising the following issues in Parliament, the media and the armed forces.

  • Concerns over the recruitment of under 18 year olds
  • Terms of service are complicated, confusing and severely restricting, yet unlike any other employment, breaching them can lead to a criminal conviction
  • The system for registering a conscientious objection is opaque and little information about it is available to serving personnel
  • Those in the armed forces are excluded from much human rights legislation. They are not allowed to form a union, speak in public or join political organisations.
