The Family in International Law and Policy

Since the founding of the United Nations, international law and policy have recognized a preeminent place for marriage and the family as the “natural and fundamental unit of society.” This Definitions paper will evaluate the ongoing campaign by Western countries to redefine the family internationally and to make homosexual relations equivalent to marriage between a man and a woman.

Five Problems with USAID Updated Youth Policy
