چکیده

The focal question of this paper is “Would it be in a global, postmodern, multiculturalist, discourse categorically impossible to ‘justify’ the universality of human rights?” While the vastly approved answer is “certainly yes,” the hypothesis of this paper is “conditionally no!”
This paper consists of two levels. In the theoretical level, a theoretical monist-pluralist frame of reference will be developed to reformulate the problematic of the universality of human rights in a form more compatible methodologically with multiculturalist social sciences and current discourses of cultural studies. Demonstrating the weaknesses of the current alternatives to support the universality of human rights, the main hypothesis of this study is to refer to a reconstructed version of the “golden rule of reciprocal fairness.”
In the practical level, this paper will set forth finally "why," "which," and "how" a set of human rights have to be developed as the basic principle of a new global order grounded on an international democratic consent and targeting at comity instead of conflict among diversities.
