Merry Christmas & Better New Year 2020


Nordic Committee for Human Rights
wishes all
Merry Christmas & Better New Year 2020





In today's world.....What if?



We, in the NCHR, deeply regret the suffering caused to all the children who
have been taken into care on arbitrary grounds and placed in foster homes
or institutions. We also extend our sympathy to their parents and relatives.

Christmas time is Family time.


However, during the Christmas season, the social services in the Nordic
countries almost systematically refuse contact between the children in
compulsory care and their families.

The NCHR is pleased to announce, or to remind, that the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg, France, has in three (3) verdicts pronounced since September 2019, found Norway guilty of serious violations of children's and their families' Human Rights to private and family life.
European Court verdicts apply to - and must be respected by - ALL European States. 



Sincere Christmas Greetings
and wishing
Respect for Family Rights and all Human Rights in 2020

NCHR Celebrates International Family Day, 2019

NCHR Celebrates International Family Day,
May 15, 2019



2019 marks the 25th anniversary of the UN International Family Year and today is the International Family Day
The United Nations has declared May 15 as the International Family Day.
The UN has consecrated this special day, every year, to emphasize the importance of the Family to all societies - including our Nordic countries.

International Family Day is celebrated around the world in different ways.

This year's theme is "Families and climate action: Focus on SDG13".
NCHR therefore wishes to remind us all that the Family is the corner stone of society. Without well-functioning families, society becomes chaotic.
Our Nordic communities are living affirmations of this assertion.

In Sweden and our neighbouring Nordic countries, International Family Day is ignored with absolute possible silence.



The United Nations has consecrated May 15 as International Family Day and the world celebrates Family, the corner stone of society, on this day.
The Universal Declaration of Human Rights, Article 12, guarantees everyone the following basic Human Rights:

 "No one shall be subjected to arbitrary interference with his privacy, family, home or correspondence, nor to attacks upon his honour and reputation. Everyone has the right to the protection of the law against such interference or attacks."
