A History of the International Human Rights Regime from the Arab-Islamic World

Project description

Universal Declaration of Human Rights – perspective of the Islamic World

The origins and the development of international human rights regimes can be traced to the period after the Second World War. The EU-funded UNIVERSALITY project will address one of the most crucial historical and social issues our multicultural European societies are confronting. The project will draw from a range of neglected sources to reconstruct the hidden history of the birth and contestation of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in the Arab-speaking Islamic World. The findings will serve as an alternative story for today's world. UNIVERSALITY will offer new insight on how we can include non-Western epistemologies in understanding current globalisation and integration processes.
