THE DOHA INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE FOR THE FAMILY IN CELEBRATION OF THE 2004 INTERNATIONAL YEAR OF THE FAMILY

Autor: ---- Fuente: World Congress of the Family

2004 is the tenth anniversary of the first International Year of the Family. That year prompted serious discussion of controversial proposals to alter family life. Without a strong and vigorous reassertion of the values that have supported every healthy society since the beginning of time, continued rapid social decline is inevitable. 2004 provides us with a vitally needed opportunity to evaluate current trends, make proposals for positive change, and refocus attention on the family's vital role in maintaining healthy societies.

The Doha International Conference for the Family

The Doha International Conference for the Family follows upon the celebration of the International Year for the Family and will highlight and collect the family-related efforts of governments, academicians, faith-based organizations, non-governmental organizations (NGO's), and members of civil society during a year-long series of events. The Doha International Conference for the Family will encourage- and a broad range of partners will cooperate to organize-family conferences as well as NGO, community, and neighborhood discussions around the globe. These discussions will channel reports, recommendations, and findings from these events to the main international conference in Doha, Qatar.

The conference will reaffirm and emphasize the pressing need to strengthen the family in performing its vital social role and will remind the world that the family is the fundamental group unit of society and is entitled to protection and support.
