Kuonqui, Christopher (2007). "Development Policy Trade-Offs in History? Human Development Reports, Capabilities Approach and Sustainable Development" Paper presented at the 4th annual conference of the HDCA, 18-20 September 2007, New York, USA.

While several human development theorists make valuable contributions to the framework of sustainable development, the full dimension of linkages between the concepts and policies of sustainable development and the capabilities approach remains partially unexplored. This paper attempts to further establish the links between these two approaches by comparative analysis of concepts, policies and measures deployed across 15 global, regional and national Human Development Reports (HDRs).
