Due to the multi-dimensional and fluid nature of the capabilities approach, structured, large-sample surveys are less likely to be used to evaluate the progress of individuals on various dimensions of the capability approach. But our speakers have risen up to this challenge and share their insights about the same, from different geographies. Kate Sollis from Australian National University discusses it in context of Longitudinal Study of Australian Children (LSAC) data set, Darlington Mushongera, from University of Witwatersrand analyses the Guateng City Region Observatory Quality of Life Survey, South Africa and Raffaele Ciula from Sapienza University (Rome) discusses the longitudinal survey of Bolsa Familia program at Brazil.
The webinar is moderated by HDCA Fellow Professor Paul Anand, who shares his insights about a similar exercise conducted on British Household Panel Survey.
