HRC Resolution on family must be firmly based on human rights law. Oral statement to the 26th session of the UN Human Rights Council

, N° d'index: IOR 41/018/2014

Amnesty International is concerned that an initiative on ‘protection of the family’ that is purported to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the International Year of the Family through a panel discussion, will undermine the human rights of individual family members. If this is to be avoided any such resolution must be consistent with the Human Rights Council’s mandate, which is to promote and protect human rights of all persons.
