last modified Apr 18, 2017 10:41 AM

Dr Flavio Comim has authored a background paper to the Global Human Development Report prepared by the United Nations Development Program.

The paper 'Beyond the HDI? Assessing alternative measures of human development from a capability perspective' explores how the human development perspective can be enlarged by using the capability approaches of Amartya Sen and Martha Nussbaum. It examins alternative measures of human development, besides the Human Development Index (HDI), and suggests guidelines for building human development indicators from a capability perspective. 


An interdisciplinary research hub inspired by Catholic thought and culture, focussed on contemporary global realities, and dedicated to encounter, dialogue, and transformation
