This paper builds on my contribution to the Fifth Cross-Cultural Seminar on Human Rights, Nankai University – Tianjin, December 2, 2016. There, I made a first attempt to adapt the 7-dimension model of national culture developed by Trompenaars for the business environment to human rights.

Partly inspired by my lectures at Central China Normal University in Wuhan, Sept. 2017, in this paper, I will take that one step further towards ways to reconcile diverse local practice with the monoculturally formulated UDHR. The title of that official document contains the term ‘universal’, implying that it is valid in all corners of the world, regardless the differences between cultures and regional social practice.

However, the basic values of nations can differ in various ways, leading to different behaviour in similar circumstances. Several such differences are so fundamental, that they are bound to lead to different appreciations of rights and obligations. This paper will use the 7-dimension model to show that any human right can materialize in various cultural appearances.
