OPHI-HDCA Summer School on Capability and Multidimensional Poverty

OPHI-HDCA Summer School on Capability and Multidimensional Poverty

COURSE: The capability approach formulated by Amartya Sen, and further developed by the philosopher Martha Nussbaum and others provides a conceptual framework that grounds many multidimensional approaches to poverty and social protection, including the MDGs, PRSPs, rights-based development, integrated social policy, and other specific initiatives.

Led by the researchers and director of OPHI (Oxford Poverty and Human Development Initiative, Department of International Development, University of Oxford), the purpose of this intensive summer school is to provide a thorough conceptual and technical introduction to current literature and techniques of measuring and comparing capabilities, drawing on various techniques of multidimensional measurement and of statistical analysis.
