- The concept of human rights, having presumably universal meaning, usually derived from "Western' tradition. Although liberals of XVII and XVIII centuries consider the law of nature as a tool for it's protection starting from XIX century the rights (called the human rights by that time) considered as positive abilities to formulate one's personal, subjective preferences of individuals. That evolution must be taken into account both in researches and in political practices, carried out by representatives of different cultures, since the comprehension of an individual and a person as culturally justified serves as a besetting element. Thus the project of universal human rights must be the object of contemplation from the point of view of different cultures and the variety of preferences, oftentimes contradictory ideas, dominating in specific societies, rooted in their cultures, formed and developed over a long many of years. Indeed, both theoretical and practical concepts have huge impact for political being. Speaking not only about implications of specific legislative branches and governments to applications universal human rights standard, but also about creating such standard from different point of views in accordance with the idea of not competing with popular sovereignty.
