UN Negotiating Guide
United Nations Negotiating Guide
Debuting in 2001, the Negotiating Guide was prepared to serve as a resource to those who will negotiate international documents, particularly at United Nations conferences. The Guide is a work in progress; watch for frequent updates.
What they're saying about the "United Nations Negotiating Guide":
"The Negotiating Guide is a phenomenal store of needed documentation, indexing and cross-referencing of UN documents relating to the family. It will be great use, not only for the pro-family movement, but also for UN professionals, who themselves have a very hard time finding their way around the UN's own website, which at times seems more designed to confuse than to help. Here is one resource that everyone will welcome. It marks a new day in the family's defense of its own at the UN, and is an indication of its growing sophistication in that defense."
Patrick F. Fagan, William H.G. FitzGerald Fellow, The Heritage Foundation
"The Pro-Family Negotiating Guide is a tremendous resource for NGOs, governments, scholars and journalists who want to make use of United Nations documents that relate to family issues. As this tool becomes widely available, it will be possible for people of good will to maintain the integrity of UN documents and to prevent their hijacking for ideological purposes."
Concerned Women for America
"This compilation is a godsend. It makes easily accessible UN statements on the full range of topics relevant to the family. I will use it, and use it often. I urge you to do the same."
Bill Saunders, Family Research Council
"Be assured that this document will be used by pro-life lobbyists and diplomats from around the world during actual UN conferences. It is an invaluable guide that the professionals will plumb constantly."
Austin Ruse, President, Catholic Family and Human Rights
"This book is an invaluable aid for those who desire to support and strengthen the family- and life-based norms that have undergirded every successful society in human history. The book provides, not only the source documents used to forge new international norms, but a topic-by-topic discussion of the most distressing (and debatable) social policies now being derived from these documents."
