International human rights: universalism versus relativism

Գրքի շապիկի երեսը
The universality of international human rights has been an enduring issue. This volume argues that the positions of universalists and cultural relativists are not diametrically opposed and that it is possible to demonstrate, empirically and cross-culturally, the existence of worldwide human rights. This anthropological look at a long-standing legal and philosophical issue will be of value to scholars and human rights activists alike.
