  • '

In this anti-right discourse Family Watch International (FWI) present anti-rights arguments against the report on “Discriminatory laws and practices and acts of violence against individuals based on their sexual orientation and gender identity” which was published by the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) in 2011.

FWI is a Mormon-led anti-rights organisation based in Gilbert, Arizona, USA. Their key activities include lobbying in international human rights spaces for “the family” and anti-LGBTQ and anti-CSE policies, training civil society and state delegates (for example, ‘The Resource Guide to UN Consensus Language on Family Issues’), information dissemination and knowledge production.

According to FWI, “the purpose of this brief is to show how the OHCHR report presents a grave threat to national sovereignty, parental rights, cultural and moral values, religious liberty, and public health and safety of UN Member States. This brief will also provide facts to counteract a number of the false claims and harmful recommendations in the OHCHR report.”
