In this anti-rights publication, Family Watch International (FWI) try to argue that progressive actors at the UN are undermining national sovereignty.

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.

This policy brief claims that “the right of UN Member States to national sovereignty is increasingly being undermined by the actions of rogue UN agencies, Special Rapporteurs and treaty monitoring bodies that are attempting to create new rights to which UN Member States have not consensually agreed.”
