Service Objectives

ICOLF seeks to:

  • provide an effective network of Catholic jurists within the International and Regional Human Rights Systems with a view to sharing information and developing argumentation on issues relating to life, faith and family;
  • reach out to others who are interested in the life, faith and family issues but lack resources, time or expertise to follow the rapid developments of human rights in the various systems;
  • provide condensed information on  issues, good practices and “rights talk” within the various systems with a view to positively impacting international and regional policies as they relate to human rights, especially those articulated in the Charter of the Rights of the Family.
