In this presentation I intend to raise two questions: first, is there any place left for conscientious objection in liberal democracy? Second, if there is any, which claims to conscientious objection (CO) can be accepted? The two questions, taken together, concerns the problem of the justification of CO. The answer to the first question will show that, despite contrary appearance, there is indeed some room, albeit interstitial, for CO to be raised.
