Conference of the Human Development and Capability Association (HDCA)

Conference of the Human Development and Capability Association (HDCA)

CONFERENCE: How can human rights be incorporated into the theoretical and empirical study of human development and economic analysis? Which elements need to be incorporated in such a framework?

21-23 September 2010 | University of Jordan, Amman

Increasingly the relationship between human rights and human development is becoming a focus for researchers and practitioners alike. The integration of the two concepts could be a stimulus for scholars as it carries methodological, substantive and policy implications. Additionally, the link between the human rights and the capability approach to human development can be regarded as rich area for further analysis. It may also act as a catalyst for future research which could deepen the understanding of the scope and importance of the capability approach.

How can human rights be incorporated into the theoretical and empirical study of human development and economic analysis?  Which elements need to be incorporated in such a framework? Would human rights-based criteria add value to existing development research and economic analysis?  How can groups specify which institutions are responsible for rights fulfilment and what is the nature of their obligations to fulfil these rights? These are some of the questions that will be explored at the 2010 conference.

HDCA seek high quality research papers addressing the conference theme which includes, inter alia, issues such as human rights and sustainable human development; economic transformations, economic policy and human rights; citizenship and civil society; gender, race and other factors of discrimination; values, religion, culture and freedom; human rights and human development in Arab Countries and culture; globalization and human rights.

The deadline for submission of proposals is 31 March 2010
