Relativism and the capability approach

Schoenhals, Martin (2007). "Relativism and the capability approach" Paper presented at the 4th annual conference of the HDCA, 18-20 September 2007, New York, USA.

My goal in this paper is to argue for the importance of relativism. More importantly I want to analyze how relativism is a major characteristic of the capability approach and its challenge to conventional development thought.
