The relationship between international law and culture is not a completely new phenomenon, nor is it an entirely surprising one. The crystallisation of the right to culture in international law is the result of the development and evolution of international law itself, the redefinition of the role of culture in the broadly understood 'international sphere', and the process of strengthening and widening the catalogue of human rights. Still today, however, the right to culture - with its many specifications - is mainly recognized in an implicit and indirect way, especially through the evolutionary interpretation of human rights monitoring bodies.
