Drydyk, Jay (2007). "Capability Justice: Equality, Sufficiency, or Priority for the Worst Off?" Paper presented at the 4th annual conference of the HDCA, 18-20 September 2007, New York, USA.
I argue that the capability approach should favour an expansive egalitarianism that aims both to eliminate capability deprivation and to raise the well-being freedom of all. It also sees special merit in reducing the greatest capability deprivations and in that way accepts a form of prioritarianism as a further virtue.
