Summary
  • Exploring a wide variety of case studies and developmental issues from a capability perspective, this book is an original contribution to both development and children's studies that raises a strong case for placing children's issues at the core of human development.
  • 'This landmark book opens up children's capabilites as an entirely new field. Combining illuminating theoretical discussion and a wide range of interesting international case studies, the book establishes how we can do much more to recognise children in the conceptual vocabulary of the capability approach. It thus orients us towards better social research and practice with and for children.' - Elaine Unterhalter, Professor of Education and International Development, Institute of Education, #University of London, UK

Summary expansion
This collection places children's issues at the centre of understandings of human development. Using Amartya Sen's 'Capability Approach', the contributors to this book draw on new tools and theoretical perspectives to understand the role of children in human development. Looking at a wide range of themes including child poverty, microfinance, disability, education, the built environment, the role of emotions and promoting children's active participation, this study furthers the capability approach as a key theoretical perpsective in understanding children and development
