War Resisters' International maintains a unique resource: the World survey of conscription and conscientious objection to military service, a database of country profiles and information on the situation for COs and conscripts around the world.

This is updated on a rolling basis, and we have recently revised our reports on Bolivia, Chile, CubaColombiaGermany, Portugal and Venezuela.

A big thank you to Marcela Paz, Victoria Giraldo and Rebecca Hummler for their work on these.

Find all the available reports here.
