What are the structures in place to respect, protect, and fulfill a right?

Structural indicators measure the existence of institutions, legal rules, and other mechanisms needed to implement human rights.

What laws, constitutional provisions, or accountability mechanisms can you identify, count, or categorize?

How do local, state, and national structures compare with international and regional structures?

What formal, informal, and customary institutions exist that have a role in protecting rights?

Legal structures can be visualized across jurisdictions, perhaps coded, graded, or categorized by impact on a map, cartogram or chart.

Visualization can also help make legal structures legible and can help audiences understand their rights and the stages of legal procedures.
