Description My paper deals with currently discussed topic of intercultural dialogue, nature of human rights and debate between universalism and particularism. It specifically deals with the position of liberal universalism represented by authors, who come from a Muslim background. I will try to point out, how authors justify their concept of human rights and how we can understand the term universalism, if the reference point is Islam. I will also introduce contemporary secular theories of liberalism and communitarianism and their dispute with Muslim authors. One of the questions regarding this topic is: Where is the borderline between universalism and cultural relativism?
