Abstract: The main idea of this paper is the lack of a cultural dimension in the discourse of human rights in Lithuania. The process of human rights, which has been stimulated by integration into the European Union, has been marked as a fast and successful institutionalization that has influenced participants in the discourse on human rights and the discourse itself. The main participants in the discourse are still the same, mostly state institutions and various kinds of interest groups. However, the cultural aspect is too little expanded in the discourse of human rights, which is the main reason that motivates a kind of conflict among intentions, decision-making and their realization.
