Freedom within Structures of Living Together

  • Séverine Deneulin


Sen’s capability approach locates individual human beings as the fundamental subjects of development. The freedoms of individuals are the ultimate purpose of development, and individual agency – the ability of individuals to act and shape their own destiny – is the ultimate means to address and overcome human deprivations. Sen holds that, within that framework, institutions or social arrangements are of crucial importance for expanding the freedoms of individuals and for enabling their individual agency.
