International Human Rights - Universal v Cultural Relativism



Should all rights be universal to all? Or are rights relative to the individual? Should culture play a part? What rights should be restricted if any? On what grounds? How do you balance all these intersectional factors within a global context?  

In this session, students will take part in an interactive debate and discussion, looking at the nature of International Human Rights and how these rights fit within an international and global society.
