This article provides a reconstruction of previous and recent doctrinal positions concerning the relationship between the universality of human rights and cultural diversity. After illustrating the rationale behind the universalist and relativist theses, it is now possible to consider the juxtaposition between the universalism of human rights and the plurality of cultures to have been overcome, in the light of conventional and judicial or quasi-judicial practice of the supervisory bodies of the major international and European human rights conventions. This work aims to highlight the important contribution made by the Italian doctrine in this difficult and politically sensitive matter.

Abstract

This article provides a reconstruction of previous and recent doctrinal positions concerning the relationship between the universality of human rights and cultural diversity. After illustrating the rationale behind the universalist and relativist theses, it is now possible to consider the juxtaposition between the universalism of human rights and the plurality of cultures to have been overcome, in the light of conventional and judicial or quasi-judicial practice of the supervisory bodies of the major international and European human rights conventions. This work aims to highlight the important contribution made by the Italian doctrine in this difficult and politically sensitive matter.
