In this paper, I will present the conceptual differences between civil disobedienceand conscientious objection, which have been depicted by liberal authors suchas J. Rawls, J. Raz and in Spain by M. Gascón Abellán. I will argue thatconscientious objection, as a practice that is distinct from civil disobedienceand rests on a right to “moral privacy”, finds his justification on a subjectivistethics or on a voluntarist account of natural law. I will try to show that inboth cases, it is not clear how a) to justify legal norms that tries to balancethe objectors’ claims and the opposite claims of rights’ holders b) to determinethe seriousness of the ethical commitment of conscientious objectors, in orderto avoid the risk of encouraging self-interested forms of objections. Finally, Iwill apply the arguments to the case of conscientious objection to the subjectEducación para la Ciudadanía.
