the capability approach: the report book


In January we launced the publication of a report book about the capability approach. The theme of the book is “the capability approach and inequality”.

We are very proud to present this report book. This is a rather unique publication. Because the capability appraoch is not very much a hot issue in Belgium. Whith this publication we think we can proof that the CA can inspire us.

This is an imported book because you find in this book a lot of new thinking and reports of new research.

We invited two guests to introduce us in the world of CA.

We asked Ingrid Robeyns from the Erasmus University of Rotterdam to say something about CA and the social inequalities:” the contribution of the capability approach in the struggles against social inequalities

Her presentation is held in english


We asked also Jean De Munck from the University of Louvain to discuss the importance of the capability approach for social movements. His presentation in english can you download here “Capability Approach and Social Movements

He held his presentation in french:

After this presentation Michel Debruyne from ACW gave an introduction to the book (in dutch and french):

After these two presentations the authors talked about their work and their new findings about the CA.
This discussion is in dutch and french:

We hope that this inspiring work can help you to build a better world.
