Human Rights, the Quantitative Approach

Human Rights, the Quantitative Approach

Published by filipspagnoli
There are two ways of describing or documenting the phenomenon of human rights violations. There’s the qualitative approach, and there’s the quantitative approach. The aim of both approaches is the same: to describe or document human rights violations, and thereby to contribute to the realization of a higher level of respect for human rights. They only differ in the preferred descriptive methods, not in the object of description or the purpose that is served by the description.

The qualitative approach is relatively uncontroversial and has a proven track-record. Organizations such as Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch use it extensively and successfully since many decades. The quantitative approach is more recent, more controversial, and a long way from being settled. However, it is a descriptive method that is potentially very useful. For those reasons, it will be the focus of this article. This focus does not imply a judgment on either approach. The two approaches are complementary and equally necessary.
