This study is an attempt to reconcile past divisions in the conceptualization and measurement of human rights. It proposes a multidimensional concept of human rights, which integrates civil and political and social and economic rights. The multidimensionality of human rights is also examined using exploratory and confirmatory factor analysis of human rights indicators. The results reveal that there are five dimensions of the concept. These five dimensions comprise two main domains, human rights promise and practice. The dimensions of the promise and practice domains are combined to create two separate multidimensional scales. The analysis is cross-sectional using cross-national data for 82 countries.
