They do this by coordinating affiliated parliamentary working groups on human dignity throughout the world. Each working group is based on the Institute's common philosophy: the Universal Declaration of Human Dignity. The Universal Declaration of Human Dignity is the basis of all our work. The document, which is endorsed by human dignity working groups in various European legislatures, codifies what is meant by human dignity, and does this by listing three main principles: 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. This enables such politicians to speak out more effectively in defence of the human person in all of life's stages.
The first working group was formed in the European Parliament in 2008 and was followed by working groups in the parliaments of the UK, and Lithuania. In Romania, the working group for Human Dignity got an official status as being a subcommittee under the Romanian Parliamentary committee for human rights. Marius Dugulescu is the president of the subcommittee for human dignity. As ECPM we support the establishment of the Parliamentary Working groups for Human Dignity as an excellent way for Members of Parliament to unite themselves around the Christian values.
