Abstract

Are universal rights bound to colonialism? Are they culturally imperialistic? By juxtaposing Morocco’s practice of torture with its discourse of cultural relativism, this study links popular resistance to universal rights to a deliberate politics that delegitimizes those very same rights, requiring a new, more inclusive system of universalism.
