The Universality of Human Rights
Føllesdal and Ulfstein respond to an op-ed by professor Terje Tvedt. Tvedt argues that Norwegian government's claim that human rights are universal is wrong. He supports this argumentation with the Cairo Declaration, signed by 57 Muslim states.
Føllesdal and Ulfstein argue that Muslim states supported the view that human rights are universal, both before and after the Cairo Declaration, and that they are actively participating in international human rights organs.
