Amartya Sen and Paulo Freire – What can emancipatory development learn from them?

Talk by Dr. Bill Walker
Hosted by the HDCA Asia-Pacific Regional Network (APRN)

Amartya Sen and Paulo Freire are two of the most influential development thinkers of the last fifty years. While both emphasized that development requires freedom and justice, their writings emerged in markedly different contexts, their assumptions often differed, they reached distinctively different conclusions, and their work spawned separate movements. The presented paper aims to compare their thinking and explore potential synergies between them and their movements, which are germane to contemporary development.
