International Convention on the Rights of the Family


Family and marriage are now the subject of an unprecedented attack by international institutions that seek to undermine the basic social and legal structures of states around the world and in doing so, gravely exceed the scope of powers granted to them.

In recent years, ideologists have begun to instrumentally use the appeal of combating violence and discrimination to push through their demands to weaken the family and marriage. They argue that violence is a structural phenomenon and exists because the roles of women and men in society differ. The alleged source of these differences is the traditional family and the institution of marriage understood as a union between a man and a woman.

In reality, however, it is the family that actually safeguards each of its members from violence. Strong family ties effectively protect against the existence of negative phenomena that occur less frequently in a family founded on marriage than in other interpersonal relationships, including cohabitation.

That is why the draft of the International Convention on the Rights of the Family was created. 52 articles of the Convention precisely define such terms as: child welfare, sex, marriage, family, domestic violence and violence, and propose the best solutions in the field of family protection.
