The Webinar: In comparing four interpretations of the capability approach this webinar identifies two distinct motivations: facilitating agreement on a core concept of health with which to drive policy reform; and the adoption of capability as an alternative to utilitarian health maximisation, in the context of resource allocation.  The difference is between the protection and promotion of health as the objective of policy reform and of health as a means to the enhancement of a broader capability set.

Speaker’s Bio: Philip is a Research Fellow in the Health Economics Unit of the University of Birmingham. His research interests relate to the measurement and valuation of outcomes in economic evaluation. In particular, Philip is interested in the use of the capability approach within health economics in order to capture the broader benefits of health and social care.

International Social Innovation Research Conference (ISIRC) 2015

There has been a considerable increase in public interest in social innovation over the last year, which calls for conceptual reflection by economists, sociologists, political scientists and philosophers. At two special ISIRC sessions on “the economic underpinning of social innovation”, papers on the conceptual foundations of social innovation and its place and implication for the political economy of regions, nation states and supra-national entity such as the EU will be presented. The papers draw on theories of power, of justice and human development, and of institutional change for a better understanding of social innovation.
