Sharing Experiences: Applying the Capabilities Approach in ICT4D (Workshop)

There are a few key theories which are applied by scholars in the ICT4D field. One of the most recognized is the capabilities approach, which argues that development should be seen as a process of expanding the freedom of people to live the lives they have reason to value (Sen 1999). This session uses the platform of ICTD2015 to bring together researchers and practitioners who are using the capabilities approach in a workshop to share experiences applying this approach.
