Weekly reflections as I study urban policy in Asia
Based on the reading(s):
Nussbaum, M. (2003). Capabilities as fundamental entitlements: Sen and social justice. Feminist economics, 9(2-3), 33-59.
Young, I. M. (1990). Five faces of oppression. Justice and the politics of difference (pp. 39–65).
Sen, A., Eicher, C. K., & Staatz, J. M. (1998). Food, economics, and entitlements. International agricultural development., (Ed. 3), 240-256.
While setting and pursuing development goals, how do we care for the marginalised?
This was a long but fascinating read. My apologies, this entry might be slightly disorienting, as I try to make sense of Nussbaum’s observations and propositions, while tying in ideas from Sen’s and Young’s works.
