Oral Interventions · Declaration · Videos and Photos


The International Parliamentary Forum, which took place as a part of the alternative program to the World Congress of Families 2012 in Madrid, gathered nearly a hundred politicians and leaders of civic, educational and research organizations from more than 20 countries to analyze and propose solutions addressing the political and international legislative areas as well as the participation and impact of civil society.

It was, indeed, a prolific meeting among political representatives and civil society leaders focused on the study and the defense of the family: a multidisciplinary meeting parting from unity that springs from a common cause and shared values and the aspiration with which it was born was fulfilled: to gather unite efforts and synergies to achieve a reform of all the legislations that at the present time, attack, undervalue, reject or undermine human dignity, the natural family and the defense of life as well as to propitiate greater effectiveness on the part of civil society and of citizen participation.
