Capabilites Measurement Project
The capabilities approach to economic progress and human welfare
|Collaborators:||Professor Paul Anand, Open University; Professor Ron Smith, Birkbeck College London
The Capabilities Measurement Project is a longstanding, multi-institutional collaboration, with multiple funding sources that develops and analyses data to operationalise Amartya Sen’s approach to welfare economics. Most recently we have received funding from the Leverhulme Trust to develop data on adult capabilities in the US, UK and Italy as well as to analyse data on the capabilities, functionings and life satisfaction of young people and people in retirement. We are organising a series of closely related meetings in Oxford, and elsewhere, to disseminate this work and support knowledge exchange between research and practice or policy. To register for these events or submit papers, please email email@example.com with the phrase 'capabilities knowledge exchange' in the subject line.
