dc.description.abstractTurkey is in the middle of the three most problematic regions of the world. Therefore, it maintains one of the largest militaries in the world. To man such a big army, the conscription system has been used for the last century. However, this study shows that conscription is not the best system for Turkey's defense needs. The most valuable resource of Turkey, manpower, is not efficiently allocated in the defense sector. An all-volunteer force provides an effective defense without additional cost. This study also argues that population growth will force the government to find an alternative to the current universal draft system. To reduce the effect of population growth, the government has been using a selective monetary service in the last two decades. But, this temporary solution cannot survive for a long time. This study concludes that an all-volunteer force can bring efficiency to the defense department. It can increase the personnel quality and military readiness.en_US
