Other Beautiful Post by Yuto of Human rights journal

An interesting article by the kind and intelligent Yuto of Human Rights Journal, a must read !

“We witness many cases of human rights violations all over the world; some people are afraid of being killed for their race or religion, girls are married off when they are too young to get married, and a lot of children have no choice but to work to survive. One might wonder, however, what human rights are in the first place. Drafted by representatives with different legal and cultural backgrounds from all regions of the world, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) was proclaimed by the United Nations General Assembly in Paris on December 10, 1948 as a common standard of achievements for all peoples and all nations. While some people tend to judge if human rights are violated based on UDHR, others argue that there are sometimes conflicts between the declaration and religion, and there could not be universal human rights. In order to discuss this issue, they need to approach human rights from an anthropological perspective as well as international legal frameworks.

This post aims to examine how cultures are perceived and what universal human rights are using anthropological terminologies “ethnocentrism” and “cultural relativism”.”
