About Rights of the Family

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) posits the right to found a family and the right to marriage as fundamental to all peoples. Included in next year’s theme will be the vulnerabilities certain individuals and groups face world-wide with regard to discrimination, consent, family planning, and other family-related issues. Please visit the Human Rights Education Associates website,, for a further explanation of family rights and the legal instruments that are available to protect these rights.
