  "description": "<p>This article is dedicated to analysis of the traditionalist agenda, promoted</p>\n\n<p>by Russia, in recent debates in the United Nations Human Rights Council</p>\n\n<p>(&lsquo;Traditional values&rsquo; from 2009 to 2013, &lsquo;Protection of the family&rsquo; from 2014 to</p>\n\n<p>2017). The traditionalist agenda could be interpreted as yet another chapter of</p>\n\n<p>contextualist opposition to the universalist application human of rights and as a</p>\n\n<p>successor to the cultural relativism in human rights promoted in the past by the</p>\n\n<p>Organization of Islamic States or countries from the Global South. This article</p>\n\n<p>seeks to challenge such an interpretation and instead makes the argument that the</p>\n\n<p>traditionalist agenda employs novel aspects of illiberal norm protagonism in the</p>\n\n<p>human rights sphere. The article undertakes an in-depth analysis of the discourse</p>\n\n<p>coalitions of both supporters and opponents of the traditionalist agenda, using the</p>\n\n<p>tools of discourse analysis in international relations and drawing on a constructivist</p>\n\n<p>approach to norm diffusion in international organisations.</p>",
