Assignment The ethics of conscientious objection have long been a topic of debate in military ethics



The ethics of conscientious objection have long been a topic of debate in military ethics.

Explore the moral implications of conscientious objection to military service and conflict, and research and address the following:

  1. Define conscientious objection according to the U.S. military.
    • Discuss the circumstances the U.S. military permits conscientious objection to war,  the requirements to declare conscientious objector status, and whether or not servicemen and military draftees can object to serving in some wars and not object to serving in other wars
  2. Evaluate whether or not Just War theory applies to the issue of conscientious objection.
    • If a nation, such as the United States, pursues a Just War, what right do its citizens have to object to serving in that war?
  3. Evaluate the current U.S. military policy towards conscientious objection. Consider the following questions in your evaluation:
    • Do you believe that conscientious objection is morally permissible?
    • Do you believe the U.S. military should allow for conscientious objection by its service members?
    • How has the Global War on Terror and particularly the War in Iraq (a preemptive war) impacted rates of conscientious objection in the U.S. military?
    • Are there any changes to U.S. policy with regards to conscientious objection that you believe should be changed?
