Conscientious Objection in South Korea

A documentation by War Resisters' Interna­tional and Korea Solidarity for Conscientious Objection

Just in time for International Conscientious Objec­tion Day – 15 May – WRI and KSCO published a docu­mentation on the situation of conscientious objec­tors in South Korea. This publication, available online for download, includes background information on the right to conscientious objection in South Korea, and the Korean conscientious objection movement. It includes testimonies of conscientious objectors, and a range of legal documents, from Korean to international jurisprudence.
This publication is the most up-to-date overview on conscientious objection in South Korea, and an invaluable resource for everyone who wants to support the Korean CO movement.
