Legal pluralism as a human right and/or as a human rights violation

Eva Brems UGent (2017) Human Rights encounter legal pluralism : normative and empirical approaches. In Oñati International Series in Law and Society p.23-39
abstract
INTERNATIONAL HUMAN RIGHTS law can be analysed in terms of legal pluralism. In public opinion, ‘ human rights ’ are often portrayed as a clear and homogenous concept. Yet those who work in the field of human rights know that the reality is very different. A seemingly simple question such as ‘ show me the list of all human rights ’ or ‘ draft me a list of all human rights ’ is certain to generate as many different lists as there are human rights experts. Indeed, there is no such thing as a single human rights catalogue. Instead, human rights are found in a multitude of highly diverse sources. Even if we leave aside domestic legal sources and focus only on international human rights law, we are dealing with a complex, multilayered reality. The sources and mechanisms of international human rights law can be differentiated along several lines.
