Speaking about cultural rights before addressing the notion of culture would be like attempting to put the cart before the horse. In fact, the issue of recognising cultural rights is first and foremost a cultural problem rather than a legal or political problem. Thus, cultural rights cannot exist without culture. In other words, the existence of cultural rights suggests the prior existence of culture. It is necessary to try to impede defining culture prior to determining the rights which objectivise it. First, we must define culture and then take up the issue of cultural rights.
International texts related with human rights include also cultural rights. But if political, economical, social etc. conditions don’t develop, this rights will remain as died letters on paper. For be applied cultural rights, culture should be democratized by two ways: on one hand the democratization of inter-individual relations, on other hand the democratization of inter-community relations.
