However, human rights are not just summary ideas – they are define and guarded by using regulation.

The most obvious challenge to the universality factor comes from ‘cultural relativism’, which maintains that universal human rights are neo-imperialistic and culturally hegemonic. While this perspective may be tempting, the relativist argument encompasses a debilitating self-contradiction? By postulating that the only sources of moral validity are individual cultures themselves, one is precluded from making any consistent moral judgements. 2) The cultural relativist in fact makes a Universalist judgement in arguing that ‘tolerance’ is the ultimate good to be respected above all. Hence, it is a naturally self-refuting theory that engages universalism in its own rejection of the concept.
In a practical sense, the cultural relativist position is foundationally incompatible with human rights, as human rights themselves could not exist if they were stripped of common moral judgement · Providing example/ evidence / Quotation1) Brown, W.

That may be his argument but it is misconceived. As well as being members of a global legal community with its rather loose norms, each country constitutes a separate legal jurisdiction, with its own legislature, courts and domestic legal sanctions. Many countries have enacted laws implementing these human norms, such as the UK, New Zealand and Hong Kong. These laws known as ‘human rights’ legislation or ‘bill of rights’ enactments become quite specific in their application. 2. All efforts to assert protection on other states by Human Rights arguably , is an indirect way of transmitting western ideologies, therefore revealing that Human Rights do provide cover for imperialist powers. · Providing example/ evidence / Quotation1.

Human rights treaties were not so much an act of idealism as an act of hubris, with more than a passing resemblance to the civilising efforts undertaken by western governments and missionary groups in the 19th century, which did little good for native populations while entangling European powers in the affairs of countries they did not understand.
A humbler approach is long overdue. · Discuss how the ideas paragraphs 2, 3, 4 1) So far, this essay has outlined some of the ways that Human Rights offer universal protection. One of the argument put forth that supports the universal protection that human Rights offer is the idea that human rights are: “applicable to all humans” (Donelly, 2003)hence protection is given to all regardless of their cultural beliefs. On the contrary, an argument against the protection that Human Rights offers is the fact that: it assumes that non-western beliefs or ideologies are explicitly wrong or inferior to that of the west, thus leading to the application of Human Rights protection regardless of the cultural beliefs of a nation.· Support your evidence1.
