for Question Time at the part-session in July 2002

pursuant to Rule 43 of the Rules of Procedure

by Lennart Sacrédeus

to the Council

  Subject: UN special session on children

 Answer in plenary 

In its resolution adopted on 11 April 2002 ahead of the UN's special session on children, Parliament states, inter alia, that it 'supports the view that the family is the fundamental unit of society and holds primary responsibility for the protection, upbringing and development of children' and that, therefore, a ''world fit for children (...) has to be at the same time a world fit for families'.


What steps did the Council take during the special session on children to have Parliament's views incorporated into the final document adopted at the session and what success was achieved in accentuating the family as the fundamental unit of society?
