    <description descriptionType="Abstract">&lt;p&gt;This article is dedicated to analysis of the traditionalist agenda, promoted&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;by Russia, in recent debates in the United Nations Human Rights Council&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;(&amp;lsquo;Traditional values&amp;rsquo; from 2009 to 2013, &amp;lsquo;Protection of the family&amp;rsquo; from 2014 to&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;2017). The traditionalist agenda could be interpreted as yet another chapter of&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;contextualist opposition to the universalist application human of rights and as a&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;successor to the cultural relativism in human rights promoted in the past by the&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;Organization of Islamic States or countries from the Global South. This article&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;seeks to challenge such an interpretation and instead makes the argument that the&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;traditionalist agenda employs novel aspects of illiberal norm protagonism in the&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;human rights sphere. The article undertakes an in-depth analysis of the discourse&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;coalitions of both supporters and opponents of the traditionalist agenda, using the&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;tools of discourse analysis in international relations and drawing on a constructivist&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;approach to norm diffusion in international organisations.&lt;/p&gt;</description>
