The Dignitatis Humanae Institute (DHI), also known as the Institute for Human Dignity and L’Istituto Dignitatis Humanae, is a Catholic-inspired NGO based in Rome. Its mission is to “protect and promote human dignity based on the anthropological truth that man is born in the image and likeness of God.”
The Universal Declaration of Human Dignity was launched on 8 December 2008 by the International Committee on Human Dignity and aims to codify what is meant by human dignity:
that man is made in the image and likeness of God; that this image and likeness proceeds in every single human being without exception from conception until natural death; and that the most effective means of safeguarding this recognition is through the active participation of the Christian faith in the public square.
The Universal Declaration is the basis of the parliamentary working groups that have been established to promote it.
Les groupes de travail parlementaires sont au Parlement européen, en Lituanie, Roumanie et Royaume-Uni.
