Abstract

The literature on rights has paid much attention to the description of rights and the performance of systems of rights. Less has been published on identifying the underlying dimensions of rights, even though such identification seems important for understanding the different types of rights and for classifying them so as to facilitate the process of development that occurs when introducing rights (Miller (1995)). In this article a theoretical framework, which sheds light on the structure of rights, is developed. After examining the characteristics of rights, a correspondence analysis is carried out on existing rights and on a hypothetical ideal right in order to find similarities between them and to identify their underlying structure.
