Take Action: New UN Resolution On "Traditional Values"
It is a matter of significant concern that Russia has announced its intention to proceed with yet another resolution on traditional values at the Human Rights Council, this time focusing on “best practices” in an attempt to position “traditional values” as inherently positive.
Approaches to the resolution might focus on the fact that it is inappropriate to present a new resolution before the Advisory Committee has finalised the report on the same subject it was tasked to prepare by the HRC, that one cannot focus on only positive aspects of traditional values without also considering their potential harmful impact, and that the HRC should instead focus on implementing universal human rights standards in diverse cultural and traditional contexts.
