Human Rights and Relative Universalism is a well-structured and detailed book authored by Marie-Luisa Frick, Associate Professor at the Department of Philosophy at the University of Innsbruck. To her credit she has extensive publications on varied subjects such as legal, moral philosophy, Islamic law and human rights. Her prior work in the field, such as Islam and International Law, Engaging Self-Centrism from a Plurality of Perspectives,1 among others, are highly noteworthy. The author possesses a rich experience ranging from being a visiting fellow at the Human Rights Program at Harvard Law School in 2016 to being engaged in bilateral religious dialogues with China, Iran and Indonesia. The author’s expertise in the field of human rights is reflective in this lucid and crisp read, which provides a much-needed fresh perspective on the debate between universalism of human rights versus cultural relativism.
