BYU's Annual World Family Policy forum Addresses UN Policies

PROVO, UTAH -- BYU's World Family Policy center held its annual forum last week, attracting more than sixty United Nations delegates, ambassadors, and religious leaders from around the world to work on how United Nations policies affect the family. The three-day conference was held in BYU's J. Reuben Clark Law School.

The World Family Policy center has gained notoriety in recent years for its efforts in support of the family. The center has been involved with the World Congress on Families and has been active as a non-governmental organization at the United Nations, airing its viewpoint on families. The center is run by BYU law professor Richard Wilkins.

The conference this year, which bore the theme "Making the World Safe for Children," concentrated on identifying and clarifying the definitions and wording of UN documents that need to be changed. "If we don't accomplish anything else, I hope we can at least help to get some of the language changed in existing documents to help protect the family," said Marya Reed, a representative of the policy center on campus.
