Valuing Freedoms: Sen's Capability Approach and Poverty Reduction

Oxford University Press (2002)
Abstract
Sabina Alkire shows how Nobel Prize-winning economist Amartya Sen's capability approach can be coherently---and practically---put to work in poverty reduction activities so that the voices and values of the poor matter. This provides economists, philosophers, theologians, and development practitioners with a way forward that addresses both theoretical and practical challenges
