Philosophers and jurists have long argued that there are different senses of the term “a right” in legal, moral, and political discourses and that these senses, in turn, reflect distinct concepts. Accordingly, they developed models of rights to make sense of this diversity. Models provide a typology of fundamental types of rights, explain how rights and other kinds of normative positions (e.g., duties, liabilities, etc.) relate to one another, and show if, and how, they can be combined into larger constructs.
