About this book
“[The] eventual adoption [of the capability approach] by research and policy analysts depends on the development of methods and applications which demonstrate implementation of the approach in concrete settings. This excellent volume contributes to this important task by linking concepts, methods and application, and by highlighting both the uses and the challenges of the capability approach.”
—Ravi Kanbur, Professor, Cornell University, USA
“This timely, comprehensive and well-organised volume brings together new work by leading researchers and will be essential reading for all students and researchers interested in the capability approach and its application.”
—Mozaffar Qizilbash, Professor, University of York, UK
“The capability approach has been centrally influential in moving development policy towards highlighting the importance of processes of empowerment and participation. This book provides useful insights into how theory translates into the practical application of these valuable concepts.”
—Vijayendra Rao, Lead Economist, Development Research Group, World Bank, USA
