A Zoom kick-off meeting is scheduled for November 26th at 6 pm Berlin time (UTC/GMT +1 = 5pm GMT) and everybody interested in joining the group is welcome to attend.The overall objective of this group is to further research and academic exchange on work and employment issues so that it will no longer be considered as a “Missing Dimension” of the capability approach (Alkire, 2007). Over time, we hope to build up a body of research on work and employment that will be accessible through the HDCA website, organise further webinars or seminars (Covid permitting), as well as organising thematic panels on employment during the HDCA conferences. The main aim of the meeting is to get to know each other and each other's research interests.
1. presentation of members and their work interests
2. discussion of submission of panels to next HDCA meeting
3. possibility of establishing future webinars
4. establishing a work and employment related bibliography that is relevant to the capability approach
