The future of human rights universality and the “cultural argument”edit
Online university conference
Is the future of the universality of human rights and the “cultural argument” in danger?
Belonging to a culture, an ethnic group or a community is often invoked as a criticism of the recognition of the universality of human rights. Far from confining themselves to the argument that cultural identity is a limit to universality, our speakers, both academics and human rights defenders, think of the “cultural argument” as a method and a condition for the recognition and guarantee of the universality of human rights.
