UN Human Rights Council adopted resolution on ‘Protection of the Family’


A resolution entitled ‘Protection of the Family’ tabled by Bangladesh, China, Côte d’Ivoire, Egypt, El Salvador, Mauritania, Morocco, Namibia, Qatar, Russian Federation, Sierra Leone, Tunisia and Uganda was adopted at the Human Rights Council. An amendment tabled by Chile, Uruguay, Ireland and France, which underlined that “different cultural, political and social systems various forms of the family exist”, was not discussed after Russia brought a “no action” motion which was adopted by a 22-20 majority. The resolution calls for the High Commissioner for Human Rights to prepare a report on the status of the family and instructs the Human Rights Council to convene a “panel discussion” at its next session on the subject. This non-inclusive resolution found support by 26 countries, while 14 countries voted against (6 abstained from the vote).
