The ASEAN Declaration of Human Rights as a Case of Human Rights Translation

Marcella Ferri

Risultato della ricerca: Contributo in libroChapter


The Chapter proposes a comparison between the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the Declaration on Human Rights adopted in 2012 by the Association of South-East Asian Nations (ASEAN). This comparison aims to show the extent to which the ADHR makes reference and accepts the human rights principles defined at the universal level, and, conversely, to what degree it expresses the cultural specificities of ASEAN. This analysis is carried out by making reference to the complicated relationship between the universality of human rights and the respect of cultural diversity.
