Based on the assumption that civic organizations may work as the most effective institution for non-schooling citizenship education for adults, this paper examines whether and how much Korean civic groups have played a constructive role in building citizen capacity to participate responsibly and effectively in democratic politics. Its conclusion is that Korean civic groups' decision to disobey the election law decreased rather than increased a capacity for responsible citizenship.
