In development theory and practice there is broad consensus that attention to aggregate economic growth alone is insufficient to advance people’s well-being. Among the predominant capability, well-being, and happiness approaches and in human development more broadly, human dignity has emerged as a pervasive aim and animating factor for the practice of development.
Through a dialogue between scholars and practitioners, participants will consider human dignity in light of development experience in order to identify points of synergy and make viable recommendations for theory and practice.
Hosted by the Kellogg Institute for International Studies, this conference is part of an ongoing research initiative on human dignity and human development led by Kellogg Director Paolo Carozza.
