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.
The documentation can be read and downloaded at http://wri-irg.org/node/7168.
