There are documents, namely declarations, designated and understood as universal, that convey principles as common laws and are enforced by international organizations. It is disconcerting to realise that we can never detect what the “universal level” really is. Are such principles defining what it is to be human? Although we all share common biological traits that characterize us as humans, homogeneity does not occur when it comes to human cultural attributes. While culture is universally present, for we all have our own despite our whereabouts, there is no such thing as one single standardized culture. Cultural multiplicity is undeniable, and it exists amidst individuals that inhabit the same country or city. If one lives in a large city, conglomerates which nowadays more than ever tend to harbor people from a wide range of geographical backgrounds, the odds that your neighbors’ cultural idiosyncrasies will contrast with your own are quite high. In our times, cultural diversity is omnipresent and subjacent to all human life, which leads us to question how it is possible for all humans to be bound to one single universal declaration of rights. What is universal when diversity and variety are the main terms to accurately describe human experience? Since we are unable to circumscribe universal as a concept how can we engage with such universally destined declarations? In what way can the universal declaration of human rights be consistently applied worldwide?
