Uyan-Semerci, Pinar (2007). "Redistribution, Recognition and Participation: Incorporating politics of difference to the capability framework" Paper presented at the 4th annual conference of the HDCA, 18-20 September 2007, New York, USA.

One of the main dimensions of the capability approach is its ethical individualism. While some groups may undermine its members to develop other individual capabilities, some capabilities can only be realized within a group.The relationship between groups and individuals is hard to grasp and when we consider the capabilities of individuals, it is even harder. To overcome this difficulty, I suggest incorporating Iris Young’s ‘politics of difference’ to the capability framework.
