Abstract

The main theoretical framework of this research is the Capability Approach. The Capability Approach was first introduced by the 1998 Nobel Prize winner, Amartya Sen. Martha Nussbaum was also a strong contributor to the development of the Capability Approach. The Capability Approach is a broad normative framework for the evaluation and assessment of well-being and social arrangements of a society. The concepts of the Capability Approach have been determined in the literature review, which guided the design of the project to allow the research questions to be answered.
