Cultural Universalism[edit]

The belief that it is possible for certain values to transcend cultural and national differences. This term also claims that all cultures will develop to have the same system of law and rights as exists in western cultures. Cultural universalism is seen as necessary for integration, as well as the protection and promotion of fundamental principles such as human rights. To enable this protection, it is believed that basic human rights standards should be adopted by all cultures
